The first full week of the new year has been fairly dry for the state, and in the Colorado Rockies.

This weekend several rounds of light to moderate snow will provide a boost to snowpack. Three day totals will likely range from 3 to 6 inches from the I-70 corridor through the San Juans.

Two storms move through the state from now until Monday, the first being weaker and further south, and the second having a higher impact to the central mountains.

Expect the first round of snow tapering off Friday morning. This gives a good window of travel time Friday evening for travel.

Periodic snow showers are likely in the mountains from Saturday until Monday morning.

At this time, the snow will not be heavy enough for winter weather alerts.

Be sure to bundle up this weekend, as temperatures will be in the teens or twenties for most ski areas. Winds will gust up to 35 to 40 mph.
