If it was January, meteorologist Joel Gratz would be calling for a powder day Friday in Colorado. It's still only October (although Silverton ski patrol is already skiing powder), but significant snow will fall over most of the state's mountains from Thursday midday through Friday. Snow lovers can expect over 10 inches for elevations above 11,000 feet, and then after a dry Saturday, a colder storm will bring another 5-7 inches on Sunday. The precipitation should help Arapahoe Basin and Loveland in their race to open, as both resorts have the snow guns blazing and just need a little bump from mother nature. Head over to Open Snow for the full forecast.
