The heavy rain this morning has changed to snow across the area as we enter the peak hours of this storm. Although there are north-northwest winds at the surface, some easterly component aloft is managing to push the heavy precipitation into the foothills. Expect periods of heavy snow & wind area-wide until early afternoon, and then the heaviest snow will probably shift east a bit (roughly along and east of I-25) during the afternoon. Snow totals will likely be 3-7 inches west of I-25 and 6-12 in the eastern part of Denver metro where winds will also cause lots of blowing snow. Snow should end tonight.
