DENVER (KDVR) — A strong winter storm system will arrive in Colorado by Saturday morning. It will bring strong wind and mountain snow.
The strongest wind will hit from early Saturday morning into the late afternoon with gusts at times to 50 mph across Denver and eastern Colorado.
There will be stronger gusts across mountain tops that could exceed 70 mph. Travel in and out of the mountains for anyone heading to ski could be difficult due to slick roads and reduced visibility from blowing snow.
The mountain snow will slowly end by evening, leaving snow totals from 4″ to 10″ in most places. There is a chance early on Saturday that Denver could see a passing rain or snow shower.
Conditions across Colorado will improve as the storm system quickly lifts away late Saturday night. So, expect the wind to relax after sunset as the snow slowly stops.
Sunday will be gusty with more seasonal temperatures.
