DENVER (KDVR) — The Pinpoint Weather team is tracking Wednesday’s snowstorm that will cause slick roads in the Front Range early in the morning, and challenging conditions in the evening for the metro.
Wednesday is a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day.
Temperatures will be freezing today as well. The Pinpoint Weather team forecasts highs will only be in the mere teens causing icy conditions throughout the day.
The wind is also a big factor Wednesday. Gusts up to 20 mph will be felt in the northeast. The wind mixed with blowing snow could cause blizzard-like conditions, so take it slow.
