DENVER -- A snowstorm forecasted to bring several inches of snow to the Denver metro and surrounding areas already led to some closings Wednesday afternoon.

CU Boulder announced on Wednesday that its campus would close at 4 p.m. in the afternoon, noting a decision about Thursday would be made later in the day.

A winter storm warning is in effect, with heavy snow and bitterly cold temperatures expected for the Front Range corridor Wednesday night and into Thursday, with some areas seeing as much as 10 to 12 inches by lunchtime Thursday.

Snow is likely to make for a messy commute Thursday morning and could lead to school closings and delays around the region.
