DENVER (AP) Colorado is waking up to much colder conditions Friday, with large parts of the state expected to see snow.

Residents on the Grand Mesa may be seeing Winter come early this year, especially at Powderhorn Ski Resort.

Powderhorn is reporting nine inches of snow overnight.

The Denver metro area forecast calls for rain turning to snow early Friday morning. Less than half an inch is possible on grassy areas.

Foothill and mountain areas near Estes Park are forecast to have 6 to 12 inches, with lower amounts south of Nederland. Only 1 to 4 inches are expected over the foothills directly west of the Denver area.

Heavier snow is forecast in Wyoming, western Nebraska and for the northwestern mountains of Colorado.

Winds over 60 mph are likely over the eastern plains as the storm exits the state during the day Friday.
