Grand County to expect 4 to 8 inches of snow as weather service extends winter weather advisory

The National Weather Service has extended its winter weather advisory to Thursday afternoon as a large storm moves into the north central region of Colorado.

Areas below 9,000 feet in Grand County can now expect between four to eight inches of snow by Thursday, according to the weather service.

The powerful winter storm will bring heavy snow and blizzard conditions to north central and northeast Colorado through Thursday, with some forecasters calling for the potential of another bomb cyclone, similar to what much of Colorado experienced in mid-March.

According to the weather service, roads are expected to become covered in snow and slush leading to slippery conditions Wednesday afternoon and evening. Blowing snow will reduce visibilities to near zero. The Wednesday evening commute will be very difficult if not impossible. Road closures will be likely.
