While the latest storm to spread significant snow across the Rockies and northern High Plains this weekend missed Denver, there is another storm brewing this week that could have more of an impact.
The snowstorm plowing through the West this weekend is the third one in less than two weeks to bring hefty snow to the Rockies. Some areas in the heart of the Colorado Rockies will pick up more than a foot of fresh powder this weekend.
East of the Front Range, however, AccuWeather.com Meteorologist Bill Deger explained, "Denver, Colorado Springs and Pueblo are expected to see nothing more than a few sprinkles or flurries later Saturday."
While these cities along Colorado's Interstate 25 corridor will catch a break from this system, it will be a close call with the system on the way next week.
This next storm will first plow into the West Coast this weekend, spreading more rain and mountain snow through the region. Where this system emerges from the Rockies early next week will determine which areas of Colorado and/or New Mexico could be dealing with yet another major snowstorm.
Right now, the time frame for this next big snow looks to be Monday night into early Tuesday for areas just east of the mountains. Later Tuesday into Tuesday night, the snowstorm could shift gears farther east into parts of Kansas and Nebraska.
By Wednesday, some wet snow could even fall for the first time in parts of the Upper Midwest that haven't had any snow yet this season.
Residents of these states should continue to check back with AccuWeather.com in the coming days for updates on this storm potential and more details on the impacts it will have.
