More mountain snow in time for the holiday weekend; Denver’s ups and downs continue

DENVER -- More snow will return to Colorado's northern mountains later Thursday night and into Friday.  Several inches of fresh snow are expected along with some gusty wind.

Travel could be difficult at times especially over the mountain passes. Vail, Loveland, Berthoud and Rabbit Ears passes will be the most impacted areas.

In Denver, it will be windy on Friday with gusts from the northwest up to 30 mph at times, but it will be mild with highs near 50.

There could be a passing snow or rain shower late in the day, but the best chance will be in the mountains and east of the city on the Plains.

The weekend is looking sunny and dry.  Near-normal temperatures are expected Saturday with highs in the low to mid-40s. Sunday will be warmer with highs in the low 50s.

For Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, expect a weak cold front to deliver some clouds.

It will be noticeably cooler with highs around 40 degrees.  And there is another slight chance for a passing snow and/or rain shower.
