Get out the boots, snow pants, shovels, and possibly tire chains (in the mountains). Snow is on the way. The Front Range is under a Winter Storm Warning. The National Weather Service predicts up to 11 inches of snow over the next 24 hours in some areas along the Front Range.

The Poudre School District sent an email to parents last evening canceling after-school activities on February 1.
