Much of Colorado will soon be hit by a round of light, widespread snow that's about to move into the state, with snow expected to fall on Friday.

According to the National Weather Service, most of the mountains will see an inch or two of snow. The deepest totals are expected at higher points of elevation, but still only in the three-to-four inch range.

This round of snow is likely the last Colorado will see for several days until chances of precipitation on January 19 and 22. Much of the rest of January is expected to be dry.

Impacts from this round of snow are unlikely, though roads may become slick in some areas. Along the Front Range, some spots are expected to see a rainy, snowy mix. A cold front will be felt prior to the storm and gusty winds will be felt after.

In the event that an alert or warning is issued, that can be found on the National Weather Service website.
