The heaviest of the precipitation will hold off until Friday afternoon and night, with an extended period of sleet possible during that time.
After 1 p.m. Saturday, a 90 percent chance of snow becomes rain and snow, then rain after 4 p.m., according to the weather service. Up to a quarter-inch could accumulate in the worst spots, especially in higher elevations, meteorologists said. First, the sun is quite strong this time of year and even with cloud cover, the roads tend to absorb enough solar radiation so the snow has a hard time sticking during the day.
Colorado Springs was a little late in the game.
Heavy snow will fall across the higher elevations, especially in the Colorado Rockies. High: 35-40. Wind: E 5-15 miles per hour. Hampshire Co, western Hampden and central/western Berkshire will see 2-4.

NWS has issued a Winter Storm Warning for snow and wind which will go into effect from 3 a.m. Friday, March 31 through 6 a.m. Saturday, April 1.
"Only travel in an emergency", the service said. New precipitation amounts of less than a tenth of an inch possible. She expects to see 10 to 14 inches of snow in Woodland Park and 10 to 16 inches in Cripple Creek. Freezing rain could be an issue over northern Worcester County and into Franklin County.
Highs Saturday will be near 40 with less than a half inch of snow and sleet accumulation possible, the service says.
"From the Berkshires and northern MA to the Green and White Mountains, a couple of more slushy inches of snow and sleet are likely by the end of Saturday", AccuWeather Meteorologist Jake Sojda said. "It's still looking pretty snowy for us". Or, anyway, it's supposed to snow before 10 a.m. and there's a chance of rain and snow between 10 a.m. and noon. A storm system will sail in from the west and bring a good slug of moisture with it.
