From warm to snow: Strong winds to continue as cold front brings snow to Colorado

DENVER -- A cold front is racing toward Colorado.

Strong winds will continue Thursday night, but the direction will be turning to from the north.

That switch will usher in much colder temperatures, with a 40-degree drop from the 70s of the past few days.

And snow is expected.

The snow will be early and then another round later Friday could impact the drive between Denver and Colorado Springs by the afternoon commute.

Accumulation appears to be light in Denver with generally a half-inch or less. However, there will be better chances for snow to add up south, east and west of the city.

Travel will be impacted with advisories in place through the central mountains and a blizzard conditions in northeast Colorado.
