Mountain avalanche danger continues; chance of snow in Denver next week: Pinpoint Weather Alert Day

DENVER -- The Colorado mountains continue to get snow Thursday night. The risk for avalanches remains at historically high levels. So, traveling into the Colorado mountains is not advised due the threat for snow slides.

There will be a break in the snow for the mountains early on Friday before more accumulating snow returns later Friday into early Saturday. Those planning to ski this weekend should pay attention to roads conditions before heading up to the high country.

In Denver, we will have a mild Friday with highs in the upper 40s to low 50s with some sunshine early in the day.  We are expecting clouds to quickly increase followed by rain and snow showers for the evening. Right now, we are not expecting any accumulation across the city.

Your weekend will be mainly sunny and dry in Denver with highs both days in the low to mid-40s. There will be a brisk northwest breeze on Saturday.  So, if you have to be out, grab the jacket because that wind will put a chill in the air.

We then shift our attention to our next chance for accumulating snow in the metro, which looks to arrive on Tuesday into Wednesday. We are watching details related to the timing of the snow and possible accumulation in Denver and along the Front Range.
