Happy New Year everyone. It should snow in mountain areas this weekend, mainly Saturday night and early Sunday. It’s not a big storm, but given this snow season we’ll take what we can get. It will probably be enough to slow travel down on some of the high passes. For the Front Range light amounts of snow might spread a couple miles east of the continental divide, but most of the foothills and plains should stay dry. Milder than average temperatures should continue through Tuesday.
The next storm to affect the mountains is due to sweep through on Wednesday, but once again a big snow is not expected. That one may bring some precipitation to eastern Colorado too, and a change to colder weather statewide is expected on Wednesday.
