DENVER — The latest winter storm has arrived for parts of Colorado, including the southern suburbs of Denver, on Friday night. Snow is falling at a rate of 1-2 inches per hour on the Palmer Divide.

A winter weather advisory is up for Evergreen to Castle Rock and southward. Fort Collins to downtown Denver should be less than 2 inches.

In the Denver metro area, 2-4 inches of snow will fall, with southern and western suburbs getting the most.

The Palmer Divide will likely get 4-8 inches and southern foothills should hit in the range of 5-10 inches.  Both areas could have some 10-12-inch totals.

The snow will taper off from north to south Saturday.  Denver northward should see an end to snow in the morning.  South and west of Denver will take through the day for the snow to end.

Roads are deteriorating in some areas in the mountains.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is also tweeting about enforcing traction laws in some areas.

Farther south, the Colorado State Patrol in Colorado Springs tweeted that visibility is extremely reduced because of the falling snow.
