A continental polar airmass was in place across the Central High Plains as a storm system moved into the Central Rockies late Thursday night and during the day on Friday. Ahead of the storm system, strong warm air advection developed across the High Plains leading to the development of widespread snow during the morning hours on Friday.  The snow quickly spread across the area by early afternoon and continued into the evening hours.  By early evening, most locations reported 1 to 3 inch snow depths.
