12:15 pm
leadville. feels like 31 on the csu campus in fort collins. a few clouds over the northern mountains and a few light snow showers along and north of i-70 in the high country. up to an inch of accumulation possible for a few mountain areas. britt was talking about the tornado outbreak in the deep south yesterday. there's more severe weather today. in fact, that red box you see from the panhandle of florida up to atlanta, georgia, that's a tornado watch and more severe weather obviously for that part of the country ahead of the same cold front responsible for the chill we're feeling colorado. meanwhile, on the west slope, excuse me, how about the west coast, our next storm system, a cold front. as it moves in our direction we'll see snow back in the mountains the next couple of days. today light snow up there. it won't amount to much. as we get into friday i think we will see a couple of inches of accumulation, and friday morning a few flurries are possible in denver and our weather models want to produce a few more snow showers around denver in the afternoon and evening friday.
12:16 pm
friday, it won't amount to much. until next week. that's when it big washingtonic air mass will make -- arctic air mass will make its way to the rocky mountain region. highs in the teens and 20s and anticipating snow. it's really early to pinpoint exactly how much. at this point the models are suggesting between 5 and 10 inches of snow through the denver metro area and this would be next tuesday and well. today dry the rest of the day. high 40. tomorrow 39 with mostly cloudy skies. and then as we look ahead to friday, a few flurries in the morning. maybe a few light snow showers in the afternoon, but very little, if any, accumulation. after that the weekend looks brighter. sunny and a little warmer. close to 50 on sunday. that will definitely be the warm before the big arctic air mass gets here. of course, we're saying 49 is warm, we're talking about a chilly forecast.
