Snow in the forecast for this weekend

Expect around 3 inches of snow.

After another week of mild weather, the Front Range and mountains will experience some much-needed moisture this weekend.

The winter storm will push into Colorado from the northeast on Friday morning, according to 9NEWS Meteorologist Cory Reppenhagen. This could begin with some freezing drizzle and a wintry mix along Interstate 70 near the Kansas border.

Light snow showers are also possible along the Front Range on Friday.

Moisture levels will increase on Saturday after sunrise, and snow should fill in before noon and last into the late evening.

Snow totals will mostly be in the 1 to 3 inch range.

More snow is possible along the Palmer Divide and some areas in the foothills.

North of Denver, there could likely be some very narrow bands of heavier snow, Reppenhagen says. Areas in those bands could get an extra inch or two.

Sunday will be mostly sunny, calm and chilly, with morning lows from 3 to 8 degrees and afternoon highs from 35 to 40 degrees.

Expect another warmup for early next week, with highs in the 50s by Wednesday.
