A very active winter weather pattern will dominate the headlines across the nation this week.

Denver and the eastern plains have been whipped by strong winds Wednesday, and a bitter cold air mass will slide into Colorado starting Thursday and continuing through early next week.

More snow will develop in this mountains tonight with 6 to 12 inches possible along and north of I-70. There is a slight chance that a few snow showers will roll east over the foothills early Thursday, but roads should stay dry in Denver. Highs will be colder - in the 20s in the afternoon, but even colder weather will hit with a blast of arctic air for the weekend .

An Arctic cold front will move into the central Rockies late Friday and will bring much colder air and snow. The cold will remain through the weekend along with periods of snow. Heavy snow will fall in the mountains - especially along and north of I-70 where 24-48 inches will fall through next Monday.

Denver and the northeastern plains will likely see an inch or two of snow on Thursday and another 2 to 4 inches over the weekend. The bigger story will be the bitter cold that will settle into Colorado over the weekend. Sub-zero lows and highs in the teens can be expected Saturday through Monday in the Denver area.

Snow expected to melt across the Denver metro area Tuesday
