A strong and relatively fast-moving winter storm will track across
eastern Utah and western Colorado Wednesday afternoon through
Thursday. Snowfall is expected to spread across the area from
northwest to southeast Wednesday night and Thursday.

Exact snowfall amounts remain in question, but there is potential
for at least some snow to fall at all elevations, including the
lower valleys of west-central Colorado and southeast Utah. Valley
snowfall may vary between 1 and 4 inches with 5 to 10 inches of
new snow possible for most mountain locations by late Thursday
afternoon.

This storm will also usher in much colder conditions. By Friday
morning, populated valleys will see low temperatures ranging from
5 to 15 degrees with below zero readings possible across the
mountains and much of northwest Colorado.

Another storm will approach the area late Friday and Saturday,
bringing more snow and even colder conditions to the region.

Well--so far this storm is a big whoop--at least in the Grand Junction area. I stayed up until 1a.m. this morning and no rain. It finally came, then just enough snow to cover the grass and not much more. I didn't see any CDOT out this morning sanding the bridges but there is a mess at the Rabbit Valley turnoff at exit 1--eastbound I-70. A jacknifed tractor trailer has the highway completely blocked. Local weather says the snow might come back this afternoon. We'll see.

Now regarding the front range-yep, problems there. I'm watching Fox31 and it is showing slow conditions--but no road closures.

My friend up in Fort Collins is shoveling snow this morning, but here in Colorado Springs none is expected and just an inch or snow in Teller County it looks like.

Will some transplants ever learn to drive in snow/ice? IOW, slow down? There are locals that drive too fast as well.

Not much going on here in the Four Corners. We had a dusting of snow - maybe an inch - and much colder temps. What we desperately need is more precipitation but this storm isn't going to help much.

Both the La Plata's and the San Juan's have been pretty bare up to now. SNOTEL reports that snow pack is only 22% of normal in SW Colorado and is below average in the rest of Colorado, as well. Hope to see some snowy mountains once the clouds lift!

Only 2.5" of snow near Nederland -- we'll take it. Don't need to shovel, a broom will take care of it. Temperatures dropped from 32 @ midnight to 9 degrees currently.
