The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for Colorado.
It’s in effect until 12:00am tonight.
Snow is expected to impact the area throughout that time.
- 2-4″ of Additional Snowfall Tonight
“As the low pressure system moves to our northeast, winds will shift from the north, northwest. Snow accumulation will favor the northern and central Colorado mountains, while tapering off the San Juan Mountains this morning. Scattered and convective showers are still possible across the forecast area this afternoon, which will produce gusty winds at the surface and may intensify snowfall, reducing visibility at times. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies and below normal temperatures today.”

The snow level will be near 7500 feet over northern Colorado and around 8500 feet along the I-70 Corridor.
The 6-10 day outlook calls for above average temperatures and above average precipitation in Colorado.
