DENVER -- Snow continued to fall in metro Denver Wednesday night from a spring storm that created icy roads and caused numerous accidents.

The storm ended Wednesday night with about two inches of accumulated snow. As that snow iced up overnight due to chilly conditions, motorists were being advised to expect icy roads and to allow extra time for their commute Thursday morning.

Several communities, including parts of Denver, went on Accident Alert Wednesday night. I-70 in extreme eastern Colorado and I-25 in southern Colorado both closed due to adverse conditions.

While the storm wasn't as severe as the one that closed schools and dropped up to 10 inches across the Metro area and as many as 20 inches in some parts of Northern Colorado, some school and businesses were either closed or on a delayed start Thursday morning.

All schools in Pawnee District RE-12 and the Thompson District were closed, while schools like Regis High School and St. Mary's Academy were on delayed starts.

Milder weather is expected to return to Denver Friday with highs in the 50s. There could be a rain shower late Saturday before temperatures are expected head into the 60s Sunday.
