Snow is expected to form this evening along the Front Range
foothills and adjacent plains, after a cold front moves through

evening hours with lighter amounts falling after midnight.
Accumulations in the foothills and over the Palmer Divide could be
5 to 9 inches of snow. Around the Denver metro area 2 to 5 inches

by snowpacked and icy roads.

an inch expected across the plains. A series of systems will bring
snow to the mountains Friday night through the weekend. Mostly dry
conditions are expected across the plains Friday through Sunday.
