A potent spring storm moving slowly across Colorado is expected to drop upwards of a foot of snow in the foothills and more in the mountains. The Denver metro area could see between 2 -4 inches of wet heavy snow with a rain-snow mix at times.

Jim Kalina with the National Weather Service in Boulder says this storm has been particularly difficult to forecast.

“If it tracks further to the south, across Southern Colorado, it should produce more precipitation and snowfall across the metro area. If it takes a more northerly course that will decrease the amounts,” he said.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says conditions could quickly become dangerous in the northern mountains, as well as in the Sawatchand the Sangre de Cristo mountains as the storm progresses.
