Forecast: Windy with rain and snow showers

Data pix.

We have a storm on the way that will return heavy snow to the mountains and bring strong wind to the foothills and  northeastern plains.  So, if you have travel plans that take you into the Colorado high country be prepared for slick travel and allow extra time.

In metro Denver we will have partly sunny skies early on Friday with cool temps in the low 40s.  There will be a few light rain showers after noon.  Once the sun sets it will turn to snow showers.  At this point we are only expecting a dusting to half an inch of snow by late night.

On Saturday there could be a flurry early otherwise the storm will lift away from Denver, but generate a strong NW wind that will diminish late in the afternoon.

Your Sunday looks great with less wind and more sunshine along with comfortable temps in the mid 40s.  It'll be great weather for the Broncos game.

Next week is looking quiet and milder with afternoon readings back in the 50s.
