DENVER (AP) – A storm headed to Colorado could dump another 1 to 2 feet of snow in the mountains – and this time the Denver area likely won’t escape some of the brunt.

The National Weather Service says a storm moving into the state Wednesday is expected to bring up to a foot of snow to the southwest Colorado mountains and high winds could reduce visibility, making driving difficult.

The weather service is forecasting widespread snow in western Colorado, where up to 2 feet of snow could fall by Friday.

The Denver area hasn’t received snow from the recent storms, but that likely will change this week. There’s a high chance of snow Thursday and temperatures are predicted to plunge into the teens and lower by week’s end.
