From Chief Meteorologist Steve Hamilton:
Winter Weather Advisory Until 8 AM: Fairplay / Jefferson / Como / Alma...
Well folks, once again we will not be getting the brunt of the latest winter storm that will pass through Colorado on Friday and Saturday. The configuration and track of this system will favor heavier snow to our east, with accumulations of less than 6 inches for the foothills. Areas that have the best chance for the most snow are Conifer and Evergreen, where we may top 6 inches. Expect 4 or 5 inches for Fairplay, Jefferson, Como and Alma, where wind will be quite gusty. The rest of the foothills should stay under 3 inches. Clearing on Saturday but windy for all locations. Wind could gust up to or over 45 mph for many areas, causing blowing and drifting snow.
