The watches have now become warnings. The system appears to be poised to track east from the four corners area. This usually results in lots of snow (up to 2 feet) for the mountains and significant amounts (8 - 14 inches) for Denver and surrounding foothills. Still looking for 3 - 7" of snow for western/northwestern Colorado. Snow begins this evening.
