The main moisture band from this very slow storm system rotated west and is impacting mainly western Colorado on Saturday. But it’s not over for the Front Range. Our partly sunny intervals will likely be interrupted by periods with increased clouds and precipitation through Monday, although the dry hours should outnumber the wet hours.
During Saturday night a weak cold front in eastern Colorado will increase the chance that where there is precipitation it will mix with or turn to snow even in the lower elevations. Only minor accumulations are expected.
Some mountain areas of the Front Range may pick up another 6 inches through Sunday, less in the foothills. Accumulations in the lower elevations are likely to be light (0 to 2 inches), with high melting rates during dry periods on Sunday.
