The northern part of a Pacific storm system will increase clouds and the chances for snow on Christmas Day, especially in the mountains. The best chance for intermittent snow is Christmas afternoon through Saturday morning.
1-4 inches in the lower elevations. (Most areas will probably see 1-2, with locally up to 4 in and near the foothills.) Mountain accumulations should range 3-7 inches.
Temperatures on Saturday will struggle to make it to 20 even in the urban corridor, and Sunday morning will likely range 0-10.
The southern part of the storm system is stronger and is likely to bring significant snow to New Mexico late Saturday and Sunday, but the Front Range region should be mainly dry and cold.
