The snow will continue around Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins through the middle of the day with accumulation generally between 1 and 3 inches in most areas.
Snow will continue much longer in the foothills of Jefferson, Boulder, and Larimer Counties and therefore amounts will be higher for areas such as Evergreen, Genesse, Nederland, and Estes Park. These locations should see 3 to 7 inches of snow while the mountains (above 9,000′) will see higher amounts.
Through 9 am Thursday, snow totals varied significantly across the state
While the snow will taper off during the afternoon a lower elevations, temperatures will remain cold and skies will stay predominately cloudy. Any sunshine will be limited.
The snow in the higher foothills and mountains should end before midnight and skies will clear almost statewide before sunrise on Friday. That will make for an exceptionally cold night for October with lows in the single digits both above and below zero in the mountains and mid-teens along the Front Range.
Our forecast for Denver Friday morning is 15° which would not only be a record for the date (currently 22° set on 10/11/1946) but also the coldest Denver has ever been so early in the season.
