Blustery and chilly with snow Friday in mountains

DENVER -- Snow arrives in the mountains on Thursday night and lasts through the early afternoon on Friday.

Accumulations will range from 1-3 inches with some slightly higher totals across mountains peaks.

It will be windy, which might cause blowing and drifting and make travel difficult at times.

A cold front will slide through the Denver metro area early Friday, producing clouds and gusty winds. There is a low chance of passing flurries.

The best place to see a snow shower will be south of the city across the Palmer Divide at higher elevations in places such as Castle Rock, Parker, Sedalia, Highlands Ranch and Franktown.

It will be chilly with a brisk northwest wind on Saturday in Denver. The wind backs off on Sunday and temperatures warm into the 50s. It will stay in the 50s through Tuesday.

The next chance for light accumulating snow arrives in Denver late Wednesday into early on Thursday.
