Next Storm System Moves In Today. Meteorologist Chris Tomer.

DENVER — Avalanche warnings remain in place for all mountain zones Friday. Avoid the backcountry. If you’re traveling Interstate 70, plan on rolling closures for avalanche mitigation that could last hours.

We have issued a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day for the mountains. The next storm system moves in Friday and continues into Saturday morning before ending Saturday midday. An additional 6 to 12 inches is expected at the ski areas by Saturday night with wind gusts of 50 mph or more.

Across the Front Range, expect sunshine early Friday before turning mostly cloudy during the afternoon with a chance of snow at night. Up to 1 inch of accumulation is possible. The high Friday was 53. It was colder in Northern Colorado at 42 in Fort Collins and Greeley.
