DENVER — A pair of storm systems will move through the state Thursday through Monday morning. They will drop more than two feet of snow on parts of the mountains and will leave snow for the metro areas by Sunday night.
A Pinpoint Weather Alert Day has been issued for Sunday as we know many of your plans are potentially impacted due to the storm(s).
Snowfall will increase overnight in the mountains, along with the wind. By Friday morning, there will be several inches of new snow plus very strong wind to make travel difficult in the high country.
Friday morning near the city, there will be some passing clouds. An isolated rain or snow shower is possible but they will not bring significant impacts to the area. Overall, the morning commute will be normal for Denver.
Friday, snow and wind continue in the mountains. Meanwhile, there will be wind and a few clouds for the metro areas and Plains. Temperatures will hit the 40s once again for the Denver area.
Saturday will feature areas of snow for the mountains and occasional snow for the metro areas and Plains. Otherwise, it will be a cloudier day and cooler with Denver’s high in the 30s.
Sunday will bring the next strong push from the second in the pair of systems. Heavy snow in the mountains will move over the metro areas and Plains, likely targeting Denver to Colorado Springs with some heavier snow, as well as communities along and south of Interstate 70.
There will be snow for northern Colorado too, but not as much as those to the west and south of Denver.
Sunday will be a colder day also with highs below freezing. The cold plus the chance for accumulating snow may lead to travel issues around the city later Sunday through Monday morning.
Details on those snowfall totals and travel impact for the city will come as the storms near.
