Good morning! This week’s storm could start today and continue through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

NWS predicts the weather will hit Denver sometime after 2 p.m. Accumulations this afternoon might be pretty low, perhaps less than an inch, but tonight could bring up to 7 inches, and tomorrow up to 3 inches more for Denver.

Most ski mountains may get 12 to 24 inches of snow or more, according to OpenSnow. Weather5280 expects heavy snow come in certain areas along and west of I-25, but it’s still not clear where the highest totals will be.

The high for today is 25 degrees. Tomorrow’s high is 12 degrees.
