The spring snow storm caused wet, icy, snowy conditions on the roads during the morning commute Tuesday.
Blowing snow caused difficulty with lane recognition on the highways and our 7NEWS crews reported multiple accidents.
Denver got about 2-3 inches of snow overnight, according to Meteorologist Mike Nelson. We are now expecting 5-6 inches total in the metro area.
Denver is included in a Winter Storm WARNING through this afternoon. Expect periods of snow combined with north to northeast winds will cause hazardous driving conditions. The WARNING also includes areas in the foothills, Palmer Divide, and northeast plains extending to the Kansas and Nebraska borders.
A BLIZZARD WARNING remains in effect for the southeast corner of Aurora, from around E-470 and Smoky Hill Road to the east and south into Elbert County.
The snow will linger through early this evening.
Even Wednesday morning's commute could be affected due to icy roads and very cold temperatures in the teens.
