DENVER — A strong cold front will slice across Colorado during the next 24 hours, bringing wind, snow and much colder temperatures.
Winter Storm Warning is in effect for most of the Colorado High Country west of the Continental Divide through early Thursday. Snow will be moderate to heavy at times and will total 10-16 inches of snow. Gusty winds and poor visibility will be an issue in the high country.
A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect through 9 AM Thursday for Denver, Fort Collins, Greeley, much of northeastern Colorado, along with the mountains east of the Divide. It looks like the metro area can expect around 3-5 inches of snow with this storm through Thursday morning. Road conditions will deteriorate during the afternoon and will be slick and slow during the evening rush and again for the Thursday morning drive.
Temperatures will be very cold, dropping zero early Thursday in Denver. Thursday is the coldest day on the 7-day forecast. Highs will only be in the teens to around 20 degrees.
Skies will clear out as we head into the weekend. Temperatures are expected to rebound to the upper 30s and low 40s Friday through Sunday.
