Next cold front Friday, some snow for the weekend

12:05 PM, Thursday, February 8, 2018

…but first the gusty wind. We are in the mild chinook pattern ahead of the cold front and there have been some areas of gusty west winds today near the foothills. The chance for strong wind gusts in and near the foothills will increase tonight before they die down on Friday.

 

Friday-Friday night

It may still be mild in the morning, but the cold front is likely to turn it colder for the afternoon and evening. Some areas of low clouds along with light snow or freezing drizzle might develop, with little or no accumulation.

Saturday-Saturday night

Even colder air on Saturday is likely to keep the Front Range urban corridor below freezing all day. There is also a better chance for snow, but like recent storms, probably not very big. It does look like this one might produce a widespread 1-2 inches (mainly late Saturday), with a little more in the higher mountain areas.

 

Drier and less cold on Sunday.
