Denver is back to fall weather for the rest of this week, with temperatures expected to hover around the 60s through Sunday, slightly warmer than our normal for this time of year.

The mountains, however, could be lined up for another shot of snow from late Saturday to Monday, according to the National Weather Service.

Joel Gratz of OpenSnow expects that this next storm could deliver a nice package for the early ski and snowboard season, potentially dropping more than 10 inches over several days on the higher mountains, and perhaps 20 inches on some, from Telluride in the south all the way up to Loveland and Winter Park.

That could provide a nice boost for the various resorts planning to open over the next couple weeks. Keystone, Copper and Breckenridge all are shooting for Nov. 10, with Winter Park to follow on Nov. 15.

Arapahoe Basin and Loveland are already open.
