After another relatively mild day Wednesday, colder (but not bitter cold) is expected to return Thursday through Saturday. Sometime in that period the Front Range region is likely to get some light accumulation of snow. The storm system involved is large and not well organized so it’s hard to tell when the snowiest periods would be. Much of the time is likely to be dry. Right now it looks like Friday may bring the best chance for widespread snow.
A very cold air mass is expected to move into the north-central United States this weekend. Most indications are that the coldest air will stay east of Colorado. But we can’t yet rule out a very cold spell late in the weekend or early next week.
