DENVER -- We have two disturbances heading for Colorado that will bring snow to Denver. The first one was already moving into the mountains Wednesday night.  In Denver and along the Front Range, we’ll get one wave late Wednesday night and early Thursday then another wave of snow on Friday.\

It will be cloudy and cold with lows dropping into the low 20s overnight into Thursday.

Snow was expected to develop late Wednesday and and should be in full swing during the Thursday morning commute then taper off Thursday afternoon.

Snow accumulations in Denver Metro Thursday look to stay in the 1-2″ range. The mountains should see 2-5″ totals and we could see some totals like that over the eastern plains. Highest snow totals Thursday-Friday should be in the southern mountains.

Highs Thursday should only be in the low 30s.

Another blast of cold air moves in Thursday night and Friday just as another disturbance moves across the state. An additional 2-4″ of snow is possible along the Front Range and Plains on Friday with additional 3-6″ totals likely for the mountains. Snow should taper off Friday night and early Saturday.

Temperatures will be very cold Friday through Monday with highs holding in the 20s. Single digit mornings are likely Sunday and Monday. It should get above freezing Tuesday and back to the low 40s Wednesday.
