Cloudier and colder weather will arrive by daybreak Thursday, and even colder weather should move in by daybreak Friday and last through Saturday. Areas of snow are likely Thursday. Friday morning is likely to be the period with the most widespread coverage of snow.
Snow: A large, somewhat disorganized storm makes it difficult to pin down the period with the best chances for accumulating snow.
Thursday: The Front Range region is likely to have areas of accumulating light snow by Thursday morning, but due to the lack of upslope (easterly) wind, probably not everyone will get snow. And the best chances are not necessarily in and near the foothills.
Friday: Cold northeast winds Thursday night and Friday will probably increase the chance for light snow accumulations (1-4 inches) over the whole area. There is even the chance for more moderate accumulations of at least 6 inches in some potion of the area. I will update tomorrow, but for now, expect winter travel conditions Friday morning.
