Rain is expected to end late Wednesday morning after hours of much-needed precipitation for drought-stricken Colorado.
Cool temperatures will remain in the metro area, with highs in the mid- to upper-50s, according to the National Weather Service in Boulder.
A winter weather advisory remains in place for the southern foothills until noon Wednesday, making traveling to the mountains hazardous, forecasters said. Moderate to heavy snow is still falling around 8,500 to 9,000 feet, with total accumulation up to a foot in some areas.
Adding a Winter Weather Advisory for the southern foothills now until 12 PM Wednesday. Traveling to the mountains? Snow or slush covered roads could make travel hazardous so slow down out there! #COwx pic.twitter.com/47p3Rsl1Nh
