Up to around 15 inches of snow are predicted beginning late Friday night with daytime temperatures forecasted in the 20’s and 30’s.
Upcoming weekend weather across srn CO will be a combo of at least two systems, which can evolve in a number of ways. #cowx

Tom Magnuson is the Warning Coordination Meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Pueblo. He urges folks to take the storm into consideration in planning their weekend.
"A storm like this might happen every five years or so," says Magnuson. "So it is a big event, and people need to plan accordingly and plan ahead for what they’re going to do this weekend."
Magnuson also says March is one of Colorado’s snowier months and says more snow could be on its way late next week.
