DENVER – Wednesday is a First Alert Action Day!  A cold front is rolling into Colorado and this next storm could lead to slick roads and mountain snow through early tomorrow morning.

Freezing drizzle and flurries are expected to develop tonight and move south along the Front Range. A layer of ice is expected to develop in some areas, causing possibly-treacherous travel conditions for the Thursday morning commute.

The worst of the weather is expected to move through between midnight and 9 a.m. Thursday. Mainly, areas to the north and east of Denver will be affected by this system. 

Mountains along and east of the Continental Divide could receive up to 4-6 inches of snow by Thursday morning. The far northeastern plains, could also see up to 1-3 inches of snow.

Conditions will improve by Thursday midday as temperatures reach the mid-to upper 30s. Friday will be milder, with highs in the mid-50s. Another chance for flurries develops by Saturday night, with cooler weather on the way for Sunday.
