DENVER -- Friday evening will continue to see pockets of intense snowfall, at times combined with fog and wind, to create travel impacts across the area.
The most impacted travel routes will be those in the mountains and those that lead into Wyoming and Nebraska.
Saturday is a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day due to hurricane-force wind gusts that -- combined with snow on the ground -- could create ground blizzard conditions.
Wind gusts from 60 to 80 mph will be possible early Saturday for the mountains, midday for the northern Front Range and afternoon for the northeastern quarter of the state.
With the wind, clouds and fog in place Saturday, there will be a little warm-up for the metro areas, but highs will only remain in the 30s.
The wind does calm for Sunday, but temperatures will remain in the 30s despite having a sunnier outlook.
Early next week, a weaker system will spread snow to the mountains for Monday and Tuesday but likely only brings clouds to the city. With that, temperatures will be in the 50s.
