Late-season storm winds down, leaving on-and-off rain and snow showers

The storm won't cause any tree-breaking load of snow, unlike the April 29 storm.

All roads on the park's east side remained closed Friday because of the heavy snow.

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.

"It could be ugly", said Robert Koopmeiners, a weather service meteorologist.

Expect highs of 44 degrees Friday, 56 degrees Saturday and 62 degrees Sunday, according to the weather service. "Around two feet of snow has fallen and more is on its way", the post said.

Other areas of Colorado received just as much snow during the late-season storm. The deepest snow was reported in the mountain towns of Allenspark and Ward south of Estes Park.

Arapahoe Basin, the only ski area still open in Colorado, was reveling in a foot or more of fresh snow.

Officials are warning of very high avalanche danger in Rocky Mountain National Park after a powerful spring storm brought up to 42 inches (1 meter) of snow to the Colorado high country. Denver had gotten less than an inch.

The Colorado National Guard, under executive order of Gov. John Hickenlooper, activated Thursday three "Snow Response Teams" to support local emergency responders in Douglas, Larimer and Weld counties. A mix of rain, sleet and snow will fall through Friday evening. Temperatures should rise Saturday, with highs expected in the upper 50s and night lows in the upper 30s.
