Denver- Snow began falling on the metro area Thursday morning as much of Colorado braced for another winter storm with heavy snowfall.

9NEWS Meteorologist Nick O'Kelly says the metro area could get 2 to 5 inches of snow by Thursday evening. The snow will pick up throughout the day.

The storm will intensify overnight into Friday and there could be 9 to 17 inches of snow by Friday morning in the metro area.

Snowfall rates could get up to 2 inches per hour, especially in the foothills along the Front Range.

Nick says by Friday, the foothills could see 18 to 36 inches and the mountain areas 12 to 24 inches.

The storm is expected to continue through Friday and possibly into Saturday afternoon.

Nick says we should expect hazardous driving conditions; many highways could become icy and snow packed.

The storm could also impact travel at Denver International Airport because of gusty winds, blowing snow and drifting.

A WINTER STORM WARNING is in effect from noon on

Are the 49ers already on the ground up there or is this going to become an issue? I would hate to see the Broncos going to the playoffs because SF had to forfiet the game.

Heh, here in Omaha we've set a record for the latest measureable snowfall. We haven't had any snow whatsoever yet this winter. The latest we've ever gone without snow before this year was Dec 23rd.

I doubt the NFL would allow a forfeit. It would cost them too much money.

This has been forcasted all week, they should have made them play early like they made a certain AFC West team last year against Miami.

They wouldn't want the 49rs to travel and play on the same day.


The NFL likes the 49rs

Denver should be the one having to forfeit....shutting the airport 2 days everytime it snows.

Is it really necessary to start a thread every time a snowflake falls in Denver? When DenverChief and Rainman have to go Alferd Packer...then we'll have a thread.

They want to increase their post counts for the first ever Texas-Hold "Em post count poker tournament.

I'm still working on 5 count draw.

This still blows. What are the chances my brother's family catches a late afternoon flight out of Denver tomorrow? About none?

The chances are inversely proportional had it been your in-laws that are flying out of Denver.

If they were flying out of Salt Lake or Minneapolis, I would say very good, but the folks in Denver, primarily at the airport, seem mystified by snow and donít seem to have any idea how to deal with it. Hence, I would say there is about a 95% chance you are hosed.

Traveling over winter just sucks. Plan on making changes quickly to accommodate weather...if not sit at airport on freeway and bitch about it or stay home.

Any airport will close with 20 inches of snow in a 24 period and 50 mph winds. Come on now.

That's good news. It wasn't nearly as bad as last time. Looks like the the low took off east faster than anticipated.

Glad to hear that. Was the airport as much of a circus on Friday as it was on Thursday? The lines at the Frontier Airlines counter were wrapped around the entire terminal when we went out early afternoon on Thursday. Luckily, we had no bags to check and an e-ticket, so we got through pretty quickly.

I wish Denver would shuffle some of that snow to the Western Black Hills.
