Winter Weather Prompts Travel Warnings across Denver Area

The National Weather Service (NWS) said snow was falling at a rate of two inches every hour in the Denver metro area late on Wednesday, December 28, and warned drivers of dangerous conditions.

Footage posted by Nolan Ritter late on Wednesday evening shows snow accumulating in Centennial, 14 miles south of Denver. “Some of the biggest flakes I’ve ever seen,” read the caption.

Interstate 70 was partially-closed westbound heading into Denver on Thursday morning, following reports of multiple vehicle crashes.

The NWS said that despite road conditions improving on Thursday, there were still “icy and slick spots” across the area. Credit: Nolan Ritter via Storyful
