#Snowpack news: Should be a beautiful October snowstorm #COwx

From The North Forty News:

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm WARNING for areas in Northern Colorado. Accumulations of 3-5 inches along the I25 corridor are expected to start this evening and continue into early Monday morning…

A strong cold front and upper level storm system will move into the area this evening. Temperatures will drop rapidly with the passage of the cold front. Snow will develop over the mountains and higher foothills, with rain developing and spreading south during the evening in lower elevations. Temperatures will turn cold enough for rain to change over to snow across most of the I-25 Corridor towards the midnight hour and then across the eastern plains late Sunday night into early Monday morning…

* WHAT: Heavy snow expected. Some secondary roads and bridges and overpasses may become snow or slush covered. Plan on slow and hazardous travel conditions, including during the morning commute on Monday. Total snow accumulations of 4 to 7 inches are expected, heaviest amounts near the foothills.

* WHERE: Fort Collins, Boulder, Denver and Castle Rock.

* WHEN: Midnight to 3 PM Monday.

* ADDITIONAL DETAILS: Scattered power outages may occur due to heavy wet snow accumulating on trees still bearing their leaves.
