A Denver7 Weather Action Day is in effect until noon on Thursday.

Winter Storm Warnings cover most of the mountains west of Denver and north of I-70. Accumulations through Thursday morning will total 1 to 2 feet, along with very cold temperatures.

Winter Storm Warnings are also in effect for the northern border counties of Colorado from Fort Collins all the way to Julesburg. The northeast corner of the state may see up to 10 inches of snow with very poor travel conditions and some road closures.

Snow totals will be heaviest north of Denver, with 3 to 6 inches or more from Greeley to Akron. In Denver, 1 to 3 inches of snow will be possible through early Thursday morning. Expect around 3 to 6 inches in the foothills.

Travel will be difficult Wednesday night as much colder air flows into the state. Temperatures were in the mid 30s around midday Wednesday, but will drop to zero to 5 below by Thursday morning.

Thursday will be chilly, with clearing skies, highs will be in the 20s.

The cold will move out quickly by Friday, with highs bouncing back to the middle 40s to low 50s under a sunny sky.

A new storm system will move into northwest Colorado on Saturday, some snow will develop in the mountains. Denver will stay dry and pretty mild for the Bronco-Chiefs game Saturday afternoon. Highs will be in the upper 40s under a partly to mostly cloudy sky.

Some flurries might fall Saturday night, but skies will clear on Sunday with slightly colder temperatures.

Mild and dry weather will return early next week.
