Mountains into early Thursday morning.

Snow accumulations of 2 to 6 inches will be possible across the

The weather pattern will remain active for the next few days.  Snow
will continue over parts of the area on Thursday.  Additional snow
accumulations will be possible, including 2 to 4 inches over the
southeast mountains, 1 to 3 inches on top of Pikes Peak and up to an
inch of snow elsewhere.

Another, potentially stronger storm system could impact the region
beginning Saturday.  If it remains on track, this system will spread
snow and cold south along the Rockies Saturday night and Sunday.

light amounts elsewhere.
