WeatherNation Affiliate KUSA Denver – While most of the snow is done in the metro area, a BLIZZARD WARNING will continue for the far Eastern Plains until midnight Wednesday.

This storm set up perfectly and produced explosive upslope snow across the Front Range and Eastern Plains.

Many locations around Denver and to the north saw 10 to 20 inches of snow accumulate by Wednesday evening with isolated areas up to 24 inches. Extremely gusty winds created snow drifts of 2 to 4 feet in some places.

Foothill locales totaled 16 to 24 inches of snow while the Eastern Plains saw 7 to 14 inches.

Many mountain areas from the Continental Divide to the west saw up to a foot of new snow.

Look for partly cloudy skies Wednesday night and cold temperatures plummeting into the lower 20s. Icy roads could pose a problem for the Thursday morning commute.

It remains dry Thursday with another storm on the horizon Friday evening into Saturday.
