National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
558 PM MDT Thu Apr 27 2017

...MORE SNOW HEADED TO COLORADO...

.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.
