Colorado weather: Snowstorm to hit southeast Colorado Friday

After a significant snowstorm hit northeast Colorado earlier this week, the southeast corner of the state is now under a winter storm warning as a storm approaches Friday.

Denver is expected to get some snow showers from the system starting around the evening rush hour commute Friday and continuing into Saturday morning, but only about a half inch of accumulation is expected.

Denver’s temperatures are still expected to be below seasonal norms as ground snow cools the air; the high temperature Friday is 30 degrees and the low is 17 degrees.

The approaching storm is south in Arizona and will lift through New Mexico into Colorado by Saturday morning. Moderate to heavy snow is likely Friday evening and overnight in southeast Colorado. Three to seven inches is expected in the winter-storm-warned area, as are 30 to 35 mph wind gusts.

After this storm, Denver will get a break with sunny weather Saturday and Sunday during the day. The high Saturday is 33 degrees, and the high Sunday is 39 degrees.

Then, another storm could bring heavy snow to Denver Sunday night into Monday.

There is a 70% chance Denver will get snow Sunday night, but forecasters said they are unsure of the path of this storm right now. One forecast model shows the storm hitting the Front Range and northern Colorado, and another shows it going south.

The low Sunday night is 17 degrees, then Monday has a high of 27 degrees and a low of 6 degrees.
