Storm predicted to bring snow to high country, Front Range through Friday

Storm predicted to bring snow to high country, Front Range through Fridayā€¯

Light snow or rain is possible through Friday evening but no additional accumulation is expected. In areas directly south and west, especially along the Palmer Divide, up to a foot or more of snow could fall. Xcel Energy has 98 outages affecting 2,111 customers across Colorado as of Friday morning, primarily in the Denver and Boulder areas.

All roads on the park's east side remained closed Friday because of the heavy snow.

"This is an interesting storm", Koopmeiners said, adding that it's been hard to predict how much snow - and not rain - will hit certain areas. As of 4 p.m. on Thursday, Glacier Basin Campground, which is located at 8,500 elevation, had received 31 inches of snow, according to a press release by Rocky Mountain National Park.

Grouse Mountain in British Columbia just reopened after a storm brought about 10 new inches of white stuff.

Colorado expecting as much as 3 feet of snow in certain areas

The Colorado National Guard, under executive order of Gov. John Hickenlooper, activated Thursday three "Snow Response Teams" to support local emergency responders in Douglas, Larimer and Weld counties.

Arapahoe Basin is the only resort still open in Colorado, and on Instagram countless Colorado skiers have rushed to post photos and videos of all the snow that has dropped.

The search is expected to resume Monday, weather permitting.

"Highs will be closer to what is normally seen during the middle of winter, with temperatures around 30 degrees below normal through Friday", Adamson said. A few isolated light rain showers during the afternoon are forecast for Sunday.
