The National Weather Service in Pueblo expects a chance of showers before noon Friday then showers and thunderstorms the rest of the day.

It will start dry and sunny early in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins, then clouds increase with sprinkles for lunch and rain for the afternoon commute. "Total moisture from this storm will be.50" to 1.00" for the Denver area with 1 to 2 inches of liquid in the mountains and over the eastern quarter of the state.

Friday is a Weather Alert day for continuing gusty winds, cooler temperatures and rain and snow arriving with a strong spring storm.

Overnight, the rain may turn into snow, though little to no accumulation is expected.

If, like us, you wondered how we could have flakes falling from the sky when temperatures reached above freezing, we've got a bit of an explainer, courtesy of science.

In the high country, heavy mountain snow will fall at times through Saturday.

In the foothills, 4 to 11 inches could pile up by Saturday afternoon.

Don't fret over the weather too much because of course it's changing by Sunday, forecasters said. The Denver, Boulder, and Fort Collins area will enjoy a lovely Sunday with sunny skies and highs in the mid 60s.
