DENVER — Ready for more snow?

Don't expect a two-day dumping as we saw on Thursday and Friday, but the Denver area could get up to another 4 inches by the end of the weekend — and the mountains will only continue to get more powder, as an avalanche warning remains in effect.

Here's what to expect — and when — for our third snow storm of the week:


The snow began in the Denver overnight and picked up by early Sunday morning. Light snow is expected throughout the day across the metro. We're not expecting the heavy banded snow we saw on Thursday and Friday, but the snow showers could be consistent across the metro.

The snow will move to the west of Denver by Sunday evening, but more snow showers are possible for Monday evening.

In the mountains, the snow returns Saturday afternoon and will continue through Sunday.

How much to expect

The National Weather Service has Denver's expected snowfall total through Sunday at just an inch, though the snowfall amounts across the metro could range from 1-4 inches, with higher amounts toward the foothills. In the mountains, Vail is expected to get another 7 inches of snow, and pockets of the high country along I-70 could see up to an additional foot of powder.

Here's the latest projections from the NWS:
