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

The worst is yet to come for towns on the Front Range such as Conifer and Nederland, John Kyle, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Grand Junction, said Thursday evening. That could mean a sloppy Friday morning commute. "It will gather on the road until we can get it off, or until the sun comes out".

The storm wreaked havoc on Thursday across the Front Range, closing schools and roads, trapping buses, collapsing barns and forced the cancellation of high school graduations.

Although the metro area is expected to see less of an inch of snow Friday, the Fort Collins area up to the Wyoming border may have less than 2 inches, while the mountains and foothills can expect 2-6 inches, Sullivan said. "Around two feet of snow has fallen and more is on its way", the post said. More rain is expected Friday.

As expected, much of the snow that fell here at lower elevations melted shortly after hitting the ground. "It's pretty strong. It's a widespread precipitation event, that's for sure".

Japan's Cabinet OKs bill to let Emperor Akihito abdicate
If approved, this will be the first abdication of a Japanese emperor in 200 years, when Emperor Kokaku stepped down in 1817. Akihito was 56 years old when he ascended the throne in January 1989 after the death of his father, Emperor Hirohito.

As Unofficial Networks reported, Timberline Lodge in OR has seen over a foot of new snow in the past three days, and Squaw Valley in California is seriously considering staying open all year. Parts of Boulder may have gotten 10 inches. Colorado State University initially closed the Oval on the Fort Collins campus due to falling branches before shutting down the entire campus at 12:30 p.m. for the same reason.

Power outages were reported in the city of Boulder and the mountains, and in rural areas of Larimer County. I-70 saw intermittent closures typical during the height of winter.

The American Red Cross opened an emergency shelter on Thursday, located at 1700 Brodie Ave at the Presbyterian Community Church for anyone traveling in the affected area that is in need of a warm, safe place to rest. The shelter provides food and minor medial support. Any slope with eight inches or more of new or wind-drifted snow could be especially hazardous.
