Warmer today with a chance of snow tonight; Two storms lined-up for the Mountains

DENVER -- Two different storm systems are lined-up for the mountains of Colorado.

The first storm has already begun with snow falling this morning.  That snow ends on Thursday with a lull Thursday night into Friday morning before the second storm arrives.

Today expect morning fog across the Front Range then partly cloudy.

A snow shower is possible early in Northern Colorado.  Then tonight I'm watching for a chance of snow/ice/fog across the Front Range between 8 p.m. and midnight with highs around 46 degrees.

The mountains can expect 3-8 inches of snow today/tonight with another 3-8 inches overnight through Thursday.  Mild highs in the 30s and 40s.

Storm #2 delivers another 3-12 inches Friday-Saturday.  Snow tapers-off by lunch Saturday.

That puts grand totals at 1-2 feet by Saturday afternoon in the mountains.

Grand Totals by Saturday afternoon. Meteorologist Chris Tomer.

Mild highs in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins on Thursday and Friday in the mid 50s.

I'm forecasting a chance of snow late Friday into Saturday morning.  1 inch of accumulation possible.  Highs on Saturday in the 40s.

Sunday looks quieter, sunnier and warmer in the mid to upper 40s.

Time Change: "Spring Forward".  Set your clocks ahead 1 hour at 2 a.m.
