DENVER — From snow on Saturday, to sunshine and 50s Sunday across the metro-area this weekend... Expect one more mild day Monday, ahead of a significant weather system set to drop widespread precipitation across Colorado Tuesday and Wednesday.

Monday will be partly cloudy and dry through midday across the plains, with the chance for scattered rain showers arriving in the late afternoon. Highs will be in the low 60s across the Denver metro-area, with 40s in the mountains.

Our next storm is expected to bring snow, heavy at times, to the mountains and foothills, especially along and east of the Continental Divide. A good soaking rain is likely over the plains- which helps with drought conditions and may be a real benefit for eastern Colorado farmers.

Temperatures will only reach the low 50s on Tuesday, with gusty winds and PM rain across the metro-area. Even a few isolated thunderstorms will be possible.

Some snow may fall over the Denver area late Tuesday night and early Wednesday, as lows fall to the low to mid-30s. Accumulations will remain light across the metro, but areas west and south of Denver, including the foothills, Palmer Divide and Larkspur may receive up to 4-8 inches of snow accumulation.

Winter Weather Advisories and Winter Storm Watches have already been issued for the northern and central mountains through Wednesday. 1-2 feet of snow is forecasted for our Front Range mountains, with 8-14 inches possible over the Gore and Elkhead mountain ranges.

Rain and snow are set to taper off late Wednesday. Thursday, highs return to the 60s under a mostly sunny sky. Another, weaker storm, will bring cooler temperatures and the chance for showers again on Friday.
