The National Weather Service nailed the mid-week forecast, as heavy snow started to fall at Copper Mountain right around 5 p.m. — just as called for in a winter weather advisory for the area. The advisory is in effect for elevations above 8,000 feet until 12 p.m. Thursday (Feb. 20).
Heavy snow is expected to fall through the night, tapering off Thursday morning, with on and off snow expected through the weekend. According to the forecast, 5 to 10 inches of snow could pile up before the storm moves out Thursday, with the biggest totals on higher west-facing slopes.
