DENVER — A Winter Storm Warning is in effect for Denver and the northeast plains of Colorado through Wednesday afternoon. A strong storm system will move across the state, spreading heavy snow over the mountains and across the northeast quarter of Colorado and over most of Nebraska.

The snow will become heavy for the metro area and plains tonight and continue Wednesday morning. Current indications are for 6"-10" of snow around Denver and across the northeast plains through Wednesday.

The roughest commutes will occur Wednesday morning. Road will still be slick and snow-covered Wednesday evening. Many roads in northeastern Colorado may become impassible and travel will be extremely difficult across Nebraska.

Along with the snow will come cold temperatures. Highs temperatures will stay in the low to mid-30s this week with nighttime lows in the teens.

Thursday will be dry and cold, followed by another chance for light snow on Friday. Yet another storm may bring more snow Sunday night and Monday.
