How Much Snow Will the Fort Collins Area Get? (Hazardous Weather Outlook In Effect)

snow
Beano, TSM

A winter storm is-a-brewin’, we had highs in the 70′s yesterday and a chance of snow tonight here in Fort Collins. Right now our forecast is calling for a 60% chance of precipitation tonight (although, it is already raining), 40% on Thursday and 20% on Friday. (We currently have a hazardous weather outlook, according to the National Weather Service, info on that can be found below.)

How much, if any, of those glorious white flakes are we going to actually see? (I feel sorry for any meteorologist charged with predicting our Colorado weather patterns.)
