The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) says we have a Winter Storm Warning in effect across Colorado with up to 16 inches forecasted.

The National Weather Service has also stated that Colorado can expect an active week, from the San Juans to Berthoud Pass, with the highest snow fall amounts near the western slope and northern Colorado.

The loudest cheering upon hearing this forecast should be coming from Aspen, Steamboat, and Crested Butte as they are forecasted to receive up to 16 inches by Thursday morning with the heavier amounts falling today.

Unfortunately, the southwest corner of the state, an area needing it the most, will get sunny skies and mild temperatures for the rest of the week.

As for our forecast along the front range, we have a 40% chance of rain turning to snow overnight. Little to no accumulation is expected.
