If you were expecting to wake up to whitened ground in the Denver-Bouder-Fort Collins corridor, so was I. Although as I indicated yesterday, the full accumulation probably would’t be over until tonight.
The storm is farther west than expected. Moderate and some heavy rain and snow (along with some thunder snow), is occurring in western and central parts of Colorado, which includes the major fire areas.
It appears likely that a period of snow accumulation is likely this evening along the Front Range, with intermittent light snow later tonight. Although the amounts forecast yesterday are probably a little too high, there could still be some tree/power line damage, and record cold temperatures are still expected.
