Pinpoint Weather Alert Day: Rain changing to snow, several inches of accumulation possible

DENVER-- Temperatures have fallen 30 degrees but it's still too warm for all snow in Denver.  It will change to snow between 9 a.m.-Noon.  The prime time for snow is afternoon/evening, especially after the sun goes down.

Blizzard Warnings go into effect for the Palmer Divide and Eastern Plains at 9 a.m.  Blowing and drifting is likely with 25-50 mph wind gusts. 

Today is a Pinpoint Weather Alert Day for all these reasons. 

The Mountains will be all snow.  Heaviest snow is midday through evening.  4-12 inches of accumulation.  Gusty wind 25-50 mph.

I'm forecasting 3-8 inches in Denver, Boulder, Loveland and Fort Collins.  With a later changeover to snow in NOCO that will cut-down on total accumulations.

Foothills can expect mostly snow with 6-12 inch totals by late tonight / early Friday.  Gusty wind. 

The Palmer Divide (>6,000ft, Castle Rock, Monument) can expect rain to snow, 4-12 inch totals.  Blizzard Warnings, blowing and drifting this afternoon/evening. 

Snow tapers-off overnight with flurries on Friday morning.  Then drier.

Dry Saturday-Sunday, 50.
