A push of arctic air combined with a moist storm system is bringing some heavy snow to the Denver metro area Wednesday morning.
Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for Denver, Fort Collins and Boulder. These alerts will remain in place until mid evening. Most totals have been between 8 and 12 inches for metro Denver. Highest amounts have been west of Colorado Springs in the higher elevations- around 22 inches of snow.
Skies will clear and lows will drop to 5 to 10 below zero in Denver and across the I-25 corridor by dawn on Thursday. Skies will be sunny, but highs stay cold in the teens in the afternoon. In the mountains, some lows will be 20 to 30 below zero!
The cold air mass will ease it's grip on our region by Friday with highs back near freezing. Expect dry and milder weather over the weekend with highs in the 40s. By early next week, temperatures will return to the low 50s.
