After a relatively mild start to Saturday it looks like we are in for a 3-day period with below average temperature, multi-hour periods of overcast, and a few chances for snow.
Saturday evening through early Monday:
A large storm system in the West will bring some heavy precipitation to California and Oregon. As pieces of that system move east the Front Range region may have cloudy periods and intermittent minor snowfall (around an inch) late Saturday through early Monday. The chance for accumulating snow at any one location in the Front Range foothills and plains is small, 50-50 at best, and the sun will probably break through at times during this period. The chances for snow are better in the mountains, especially the San Juans of southwestern Colorado.
Monday evening through Tuesday:
The main axis of the western storm is forecast to move east late Monday and Tuesday, and that’s when the chance for widespread light to moderate snowfall increases a little for the Front Range foothills and plains.
