An arctic air mass is expected to arrive Friday evening and be with us through the weekend. Daytime temperatures within the Front Range urban corridor may struggle to reach 20, and there will likely be at least one night with widespread readings slipping below zero.
Snow is likely, perhaps a couple periods of snow, from Friday evening until Sunday morning. The details of that are still uncertain but the potential does exist for a widespread 3-6″ snowfall over a 2-day period. More details will follow on that.
The main point of this blog is to inform you that after mild weather Thursday (and maybe Friday morning), you should be prepared for a cold weekend with wintry travel conditions.
