A late-spring storm might bring more than a foot of snow to parts of the Front Range on Tuesday night and Wednesday.
After a warm, dry Mother's Day, forecasters are looking at a Pacific storm system that will bring rain and snow to the Front Range and northern mountains.
A couple of thundershowers will move in about midday today with some small hail possible, but the main event will be Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday, said 9News meteorologist Marty Coniglio.
A winter storm watch is in effect Tuesday night and Wednesday for all areas of the Front Range above 6,000 feet.
In the mountains and foothills, 1 to 2 feet of snow is possible, with 8 to 18 inches in Douglas County to Monument Hill. 9News
