Here’s a look at the timeline for the storm for Denver:
- Friday morning commute: Mist
- 10 a.m.: Rain showers
- Noon: Rain/snow mix
- 5 p.m.: Mix to snow
- 7 p.m.: Snow
- Saturday 9-10 a.m.: Snow tapers off
Meteorologist Chris Tomer said his biggest concern is the foothills for 1-2 feet of heavy, wet snow accumulation. This is where the brunt of this storm will hit. Power outages will be possible.
The wild card for Denver and the Interstate 25 corridor is the melt factor. How much of this snow melts? Tomer said he thinks a lot of it does, which will cut down on snow totals.
Snow will continue into Saturday morning then it will taper off around 10 a.m. in Denver and even earlier in northern Colorado.
Forecast grand totals:
- Foothills: 1-2 feet
- Palmer Divide: 6-12 inches
- Denver: 1-6 inches
- Fort Collins: 1 inch
- Greeley: 0-1 inch
- Loveland: 1 inch
- Highlands Ranch: 2-8 inches
- Parker: 3-8 inches
