Snow and cold temperatures as winter arrives today

DENVER -- Snow developed on the Front Range and in the mountains this morning. It will continue to push east before it wraps up this afternoon.

The mountains woke up to snow packed roads and heavy snow. Roads were mainly wet on the Front Range and I-25 corridor this morning but bridges and overpasses are the first to ice up.

By this afternoon, snow showers will become isolated on the Front Range and Eastern Plains and will taper off from north to south.

Denver will see 1-2 inches of snow from this storm. 2 inches is more likely on the west and south sides of town. 1 inch is more likely downtown and east of Denver.

The eastern plains are expecting 0-1" with 3-8" expected in the mountains.

Highs in Denver today will be in the low 20s with breezy winds.

Friday will be the day in between storm systems with highs in the 30s and dry conditions.

Another round of snow will move in on Saturday. Highs will drop to the teens and 20s. Sunday will be dry with temperatures in the 20s.

Conditions stay dry in Denver with highs in the low 30s for Christmas.
