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

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

A late-spring storm that dropped snow across the metro area Thursday is expected to taper off Friday, dropping less than an inch.

The Grand Junction office of the National Weather Service is predicting Vail could see three to five inches of fresh snow in the daytime hours today, with another two to four inches overnight. More rain is expected Friday. "Around two feet of snow has fallen and more is on its way", the post said.

Several high school graduation ceremonies in the Denver area were postponed due to the storm, KUSA-TV said. The deepest snow was reported in the mountain towns of Allenspark and Ward south of Estes Park.

Officials are warning of very high avalanche danger in Rocky Mountain National Park after a powerful spring storm brought up to 42 inches (1 meter) of snow to the Colorado high country.

All roads on the park's east side were closed Thursday because of the heavy snow.

There is another chance for rain and thunderstorms on Sunday when the high temperature could reach 64 degrees.

Rain showers are also possible on Monday and Tuesday of next week, when high temperatures will be in the upper 50s to lower 60s, forecasters say.
