DENVER -- Denver broke the record for the snowiest February on record overnight. Denver has received 22.2 inches of snow at the official reporting station at Denver International Airport this month, breaking the previous record of 22.1 inches in 1912.

The story is not only the snow, but now the cold. High temperatures both Saturday and Sunday will not get out of the 20s.

We could get another 1-3 inches of snow in the Mile High City Saturday night into Sunday. The southwest Colorado mountains will really get hammered. They could see anywhere from 2-5 feet of snow from the storm this weekend.

And even more accumulation is on tap for metro Denver for Tuesday into Wednesday.  As a matter of fact, snow chances are in the forecast until Friday when the sun finally returns and we warm to near 50 degrees.
