Chilly temperatures, more snow forecast this weekend

DENVER -- There are areas of snowfall expected throughout the weekend, but mostly Sunday for the city.

Temperatures will drop below freezing Friday night and there will be areas of fog -- thickest fog for far eastern Colorado. The combination of those plus the snow may lead to some isolated road troubles for those out and about.

This quick hitting snow will move out overnight leaving Denver in between systems for Saturday. Partly sunny skies with highs in the 40s expected Saturday.

Sunday will see the second wave of snow, that is likely to last longer with on-and-off chances through Sunday into Monday morning. The result? Likely the same, most areas 0 to 1 inch but perhaps a couple areas with 2 to 3 inches. This second wave of snow comes with colder air, mostly 20s, and that means a slightly higher chance of accumulating versus what comes Friday.

Meanwhile, the mountains will have bouts of heavy snowfall through the weekend; heaviest for the southwest. Winter weather advisories are posted for the mountains calling for accumulations of several inches and some travel problems as a result.

Early to mid-week will be mostly quiet statewide until another snow chance returns late in the week.
