DENVER -- The third in a series of four storms will impact the state through Sunday. For Denver, the impact is greatest Friday night and Saturday.
The system will bring a fog, rain and snow impact to all areas. However, the biggest travel impact from the snowfall will be the Palmer Ridge (Interstate 25 from Surrey Ridge to Colorado Springs) and mountains.
Saturday morning ski traffic will be impacted between Golden and Vail Pass.
Denver International Airport has urged passengers to check their individual departure/arrival status as the storm may impact certain flights.
Although there are notable differences between this and the past two systems (speed and location), the end result might be similar for Denver and the urban core.
Denver and Fort Collins area snow lovers might be forced to drive to deep snow elsewhere for a playful weekend.
There will be a sharp cutoff between snow accumulation and just rain from Colorado Springs to Denver, and Denver north to Fort Collins and Greeley.
Meanwhile, the foothills and mountains west of I-25 to the Divide stand a chance of more snowfall this time, as does Colorado Springs and the Pike's Peak region.
Saturday will have the heaviest rain and snow east of I-25. Scattered rain and snow showers will be possible between I-25 and the mountains. Overall, Saturday will be an unsettled, chilly and raw day.
The system clears Sunday, bringing much warmer conditions.
