Sunny, warm Saturday gives way to stormy Sunday with snow, rain likely in the Denver metro and mountains

Coloradans, enjoy a warm, sunny Saturday because the clouds are rolling in Sunday bringing rain and snow to the mountains and foothills.

The Jekyll and Hyde weekend begins with blue skies, sunshine and a high of 65 degrees on Saturday, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.

Get outside while the weather allows because a brewing storm is going to hit the mountains and  foothills starting Sunday afternoon.

Between noon and 3 p.m. on Sunday in Denver, forecasters predict a slight chance of showers with showers and thunderstorms expected after 3 p.m. Clouds will start to roll in throughout the day, putting a damper on the forecasted high of 57 degrees. Winds could gust as high as 20 miles per hour in the metro area with a 50 percent chance of precipitation.

Come Sunday night, rain is likely before 8 p.m., with those showers expected to turn to snow after 10 p.m. Forecasters predict around one inch of snow accumulation in the foothills.

In the mountains, snowfall could get heavy Sunday afternoon through the evening. Snow-covered roads could lead to slick mountain travel along the Palmer Divide and portions of the Interstate 25 corridor in the afternoon and along the eastern plains Sunday night into Monday morning.

Over the Palmer Divide, blowing snow could reduce visibility.
