Colder air sliding southward along the High Plains and Front Range will bring some snow to Denver and vicinity Friday morning.
Snow started to fall near the city around 2 a.m. MDT, and is expected to continue through the morning hours. The snow extended to the east, into northwestern Kansas along I-70.
Around the city, a coating to an inch or two of snow will accumulate on grassy areas and elevated surfaces, including cars and wooden decks, etc.
Most roads in the heart of the city will be wet, but some surrounding bridges and overpasses can get slippery in time for the morning rush hour Friday.
Several inches of snow can fall on the hilly areas north of Denver and south of Cheyenne, Wyo., from this rather fast-moving storm.
Enough snow will fall to make roads slushy and slippery in the foothills and east of the city. The mountains in north-central Colorado can pick up a half a foot of snow.
As a result, motorists should expect slow travel along portions of I-25 in the hilly areas north of Denver and through the passes along I-70 west of Denver. Portions of I-80 in Wyoming can be slippery for a times as well.
As the quick burst of snow swings through Friday morning, some flight delays are possible, due to deicing and visibility.
As is often the case, the coldest air will quickly slosh to the east and temperatures will rebound.
The snow should melt around much of the city by the end of the day Friday, and then in the suburbs over the weekend.
A large part of the Denver Metro area received snow during the major storm that hit the region early in October. That storm dropped as much as 4 feet of snow on the Black Hills of South Dakota and between 1 and 3 feet on the mountains of Wyoming and northern Colorado.
