A “quick hitting”winter storm is forecast to dump up to 8 inches of snow along parts of the Front Range starting Wednesday afternoon. The heaviest snowfall is expected to hit during the evening commute.
“Nothing unusual by Colorado standards,” said Bernie Meier, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service. “Thursday’s morning commute will probably be a little slow, too.”
Denver is forecast to get between 4 to 6 inches of snow. Castle Rock, Evergreen and Boulder will see up to 8 inches.
The Colorado Department of Transportation issued a storm alert and urged drivers to avoid or limit driving during the storm’s peak. A winter storm warning is in effect for most Front Range communities until 5 a.m. Thursday.
