October snow storm moves through Colorado - How much snow will we get?

DENVER - Another October snow storm is about to hit Colorado.

But the big question is -- who will see snow?

"A storm system will develop over Wyoming and northern Colorado late this afternoon and tonight which will bring snow to the mountains and northern front range foothills," according to the winter weather advisory issued by the National Weather Service. "Snow will develop in the mountains of Larimer and Grand counties by evening...and may be heavy at times overnight producing winter driving conditions."

"It should bring 4 to 8 inches of snow to the Northern Mountains - including the Park and Elkhead Ranges, the Gore Range and Rocky Mountain National Park," according to the 24/7 weather team. "Amounts should be in the 3-5 inch range for elevations between 7,000 and 9,000 feet with an inch or two possible on the plains."
 
The 24/7 weather team warned that the Friday morning commute in the metro area could be slushy and slow as the snow should stick around through mid-morning.  
 
"By Friday afternoon, skies will clear and temperatures will reach the mid to upper 40s," said Lisa Hidalgo and Dayle Cedars.
 
The National Weather Service advisory starts at 9 p.m. Thursday and is scheduled to end at noon Friday.
