The metro Denver area is expected to see its last bit of snow Saturday before the weather dries up in the coming week, according to the National Weather Service.
With a high in the low 40s and evening winds, about half an inch of snow is expected to drop on the metro Denver area Saturday, NWS meteorologist Russell Danielson said. It should be dry later Saturday night, though, staying that way past Christmas and into next week.
Meanwhile, the mountains are already experiencing a winter storm that started during the first hours of the morning Saturday. Northern mountains are expected to see 8 to 14 inches of snow while central mountains will likely get 3 to 6 inches, he said.
Another storm should roll through the mountains starting Sunday night, lasting through Monday evening. That storm should bring another healthy dose of snow on Christmas, Danielson said.
Back in the metro area, highs on Sunday are expected to be in the mid-30s with mostly sunny skies. Christmas should be similarly sunny with a high around 40 degrees.
