Soggy spring showers on the way

DENVER -- It was a much better day with no wind to contend with across Colorado on Wednesday. But another storm system is heading to the state with wind, rain and snow.

Thursday will start with plenty of sunshine followed by increasing clouds during the afternoon and evening.

It will also turn windy with southeast winds picking up to between 15-30 mph.

A cold front will arrive overnight heading into Friday and will set the stage for an unsettled couple of days.

Expect rain showers early and late on Friday with a few thunderstorms possible. Rain will change to snow overnight into Saturday before changing back to rain and ending in the afternoon.

The Denver metro area will see a slushy inch. South of the city and over higher terrain areas and west into the foothills, snow totals look to range from 2-4 inches.

It will be heavy wet snow, which is good for the dry region.
