The changeover to snow is occurring a couple hours ahead of schedule compared to yesterday’s forecast. For the urban corridor (north of Colorado Springs) we are still looking at 2-5 inches widespread. But, it is likely that a band of intense snow, roughly in a north-south direction, will develop on and off between now and early evening. This could make some heavy snowfall rates of 1-2 inches per hour and maybe thundersnow. In areas that end up under the band for a couple hours there may be some local reports of 5-8″, but that is likely to be a subset or the region between Denver and Cheyenne. Be prepared for rapidly changing conditions over distances less than 10 miles.
Thursday morning’s commute should be fine.
