A rapidly moving snowstorm should end the sunny, dry weather across the Front Range.

A winter weather advisory has been issued for the Denver Metro Area starting at 10 p.m. Tuesday. Forecasters predict 2 to 6 inches of snow for Denver by mid-morning Wednesday.

A winter storm warning also goes into effect late night for Greeley and Fort Collins.

"Once it starts late tonight, the snow will be heavy and the wind will be strong," said Bernie Meier with the National Weather Service in Boulder. "By Wednesday afternoon it looks like it will be east of Colorado."

That's likely means a rough commute Wednesday morning, but it's also good news for skiers. The same storm should bring 6 to 12 inches of snow to the High Country. A blizzard warning goes into effect late tonight for the plains east of Denver because of high winds and snow.
