DENVER -- Another weekend snow storm is moving towards Colorado and early forecasts are calling for snow in Denver.

The first in a series of cold fronts arrives on Thursday with breezy conditions, cooler highs in the 50s and rain showers by late day.  As the system moves east a few sprinkles are possible Thursday morning with rain showers more likely Thursday afternoon.

A few snow flakes may mix in with the showers Thursday night and early Friday.  That system moves out so most of Friday will be quiet and colder with highs only in the low 40s.  A stronger system moves into the mountains Friday and then to the Metro Saturday.

Totals could go as high as 6 to 8 inches but with a fast moving system as it is looking like, totals are more likely in the 2 to 4 inch range.

Right now forecast models call for the storm to leave early Sunday.

Highs both days will be in the low 30s.

Like many spring storms, lots of factors can influence when this storm will arrive and how much snow it will bring. We will monitor this storm and continue to update you on a snowy and cold weekend ahead.
