... it should start snowing in the metro area around midday Thursday.
The snow is expected to quickly intensify and start to fall heavily late Thursday afternoon and evening.
Snowfall rates could get up to 2 inches per hour, especially in the foothills along the Front Range.
The first wave of the storm will hit the Front Range and I-25 urban corridor. A stronger round of heavy snow is possible for all of northeast and north-central Colorado late Friday into Saturday morning.
The metro area could get 10 to 18 inches of snow by Friday morning because of the storm. Kathy says the foothills could expect 15 to 30 inches and the mountain areas 12 to 24 inches.
Yeeeehhhh hawww! We're ready for it this time - everyone's got new ski gear and the sledding hill has a heckuva foundation. Should be a fun show to watch - especially since most of the streets haven't been plowed since the blizzard a week ago.
