DENVER -- A warmer than expected storm will not deliver as much snow to the Denver metro area as expected, but it will still be an unsettled weather pattern through the weekend.

From Chief Meteorologist Dave Fraser:

Snowy Saturday: You’ll wake up to snow early on Saturday with some accumulation.  Most of the accumulating snow will end by late morning.  The rest of the day will be gloomy with occasional rain and snow showers.

Soggy Sunday: Our third storm this week moves in on Sunday and keeps us in rain and snow showers.  Right now we are not expecting any additional accumulation with this round.  It’ll just be another dreary weekend day … although you may get a peek at the sun!

Stormy Skies: While we will start to dry out early in the week there will still be enough moisture from the last storm system to keep afternoon showers and maybe a thunderstorm in the forecast through Tuesday.

Warm and Dry:  We finally get a break from all the wet weather with sunshine returning midweek and a quick warm up into the 70s!  Get those lawn mowers ready!
