Dry air over the Front Range has delayed a storm that hit the mountains, lowering the amount of snow expected in the Denver area.
More than a foot of snow has fallen in some parts of the mountains and several inches have piled up in some of the foothills. The Denver area is expected to get from 2 to 5 inches of snow.
A blizzard warning is in effect for parts of the eastern plains through Sunday morning. Areas affected include Bennett, Byers, Fort Morgan and Holyoke. Forecasts call for wind gusts of 50 mph and from 4 to 8 inches of snow.
