The heaviest snow will arrive after 9 a.m. and snow likely for most area through midday. Then the snow will taper off in the early afternoon and all areas should be dry by sunset.

All locations in the foothills of Jefferson, Boulder, and Larimer Counties as well as the Denver, Boulder, and Greeley areas are under a Winter Weather Advisory through 3 p.m. Only the Fort Collins areas has been left out of the advisory. Most areas will end up with 2-4 inches of snow although a few spots in the foothills could get slightly more. Fort Collins will likely get under 2 inches and that is why there is no advisory in that area.

There will also be limited snow in the mountains on Thursday with 1-4 inches at most ski areas and along the I-70 mountain corridor between Georgetown and Avon. Winter driving conditions are certainly possible but this will not be a big storm for the high country.
