Winter Storm Watch

URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
1228 PM MDT Thu Apr 27 2017

...MORE SNOW HEADED TO COLORADO...

.The first storm to affect the Colorado high country will wind
down by 6 PM today. Between now and 6 PM brief moderate to heavy
snow showers are possible along the I-70 corridor and northern
mountains. Travelers across the high mountains passes should
continue to be prepared for reduced visibility and slow,
hazardous winter travel conditions associated with the snow
showers this afternoon into this evening.

Another storm system will bring colder temperatures and more
widespread snowfall all the way down onto the plains Friday night
and Saturday. This storm will have potential to bring significant
snow accumulations up to a foot over the foothills of Boulder and
Jefferson counties, and across the Palmer Divide. This may impact
travel across those areas as temperatures drop into the 20s. A
few inches of snow will be possible in lower elevations including
the Denver metro area. Snow accumulation on trees that have
already leafed out may result in broken tree limbs and scattered
power outages.
Stay tuned to the National Weather Service or your
local news media for the latest updates on this spring storm.

The Watch is now a Warning and has been changed on the website. For the Bailey question, to be specific, 1" possible this afternoon, 3 - 7" possible overnight and another 1 - 2" on Saturday-day. So, potentially as much as 10" total, or as little as 5" for the Bailey area. That is the latest from our model data, QPF and atmospheric soundings. -Steve
