A warm Friday before a Saturday storm

A storm system headed our way for Saturday will mean some snow for much of Colorado. Friday will be the "warm before the storm." Most areas will warm into the low-to-mid 60's, though higher elevations in Northern El Paso County will warm into the upper 50's and Teller County highs will be in the 40's. Expect the sun to shine, but clouds begin to build late this afternoon and tonight. The wind will also increase as the storm system draws closer to us.

Snow could begin as early as 5-7 AM Saturday in our northwest areas, and it could linger to as late as 8-10 PM for our southern areas. Some flurries could linger through early Sunday morning. Most areas along I-25 will see 1-4" with totals of up to 5" in the high elevations west of I-25. An inch or two at best will fall for the Lower Arkansas River Valley, while higher elevations in areas of Southern Colorado near the New Mexico border could see up to 3".

Fletcher explained that more than 250 people participated in the January drive, and she hopes to have similar numbers April 19.
