A large Pacific storm system will move over the southern Rockies today. This storm will bring a prolonged period of moderate to occasionally heavy snow to the Continental Divide. Snow will begin to increase over the San Juans by Saturday afternoon and over a foot of snow could accumulate for the higher elevations by Sunday morning. The Sangre De Cristo mountains and Pikes Peak will likely see several inches of snow accumulation on Saturday into Sunday as well. The southeast Colorado plains will remain dry on Saturday, with above normal high temperatures.   (Please visit http://weather.gov/pub for more information.)
