A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late this morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to colder temperatures. So then, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
ADDITIONAL Snowfall Potential Through Early This Morning:
2-5": Palmer Lake, Monument, Black Forest, Peyton, Calhan, Limon, Castle Rock, Denver...Some areas in Douglas and Elbert County could see locally higher amounts.
1-3": Woodland Park, Air Force Academy, Falcon, far northeast Colorado Springs.
Tr.-1": Stetson Hills, Cimarron Hills, Rockrimmon, and this will be true for the northern portions of those neighborhoods.
Strong northerly winds will continue to produce poor visibility and a lot of blowing and drifting in rural areas. Dangerous travel conditions will prevail through the morning for many communities north and east of Colorado Springs all the way to Denver.
The storm not be completely done with the Palmer Divide and Denver Metro Area until midday today.
Quiet but cool weather can be expected the rest of this weekend.
