Another snow day, another opportunity to see cars slip and slide past a stop sign

Most of the snow that’s melted over the last week is coming back starting Wednesday night, thanks to a brief weather system that passes through Friday.

The National Weather Service issued a Winter Storm Warning for Denver starting at 6 p.m. Wednesday through noon on Thursday.

Denver will see up to six inches of snow with surrounding areas expected to get even more. Light rain is expected to start Wednesday evening with snowfall early Thursday morning.

Weather officials have warned people to tread with caution if driving Thursday morning, as roads will likely be icy and slick.

“The main impact is going to be south and west of Denver,” National Weather Service meteorologist Scott Entrekin said Wednesday morning.

Denver Public Schools have yet to make a decision on whether to cancel classes.

Sunshine will return to metro-Denver this weekend with temperatures in the 50s and 60s.
