Meteorologists at Weather.com are predicting “a major snowstorm will likely pummel parts of the Rockies and High Plains this weekend with over a foot of snow that could snarl travel, damage trees and knock out power in parts of Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska.”
The expected snowstorm follows unseasonably warm temperatures throughout much of the Plains and Upper Midwest. Forecasters from AccuWeather.com are predicting that the snowstorm could “possibly become one of the biggest snowstorms in the Mile High City’s history” with snowfall totals that “could reach 2 feet in Denver and pile as high as 3 feet in places west of Denver, such as Boulder and Fort Collins.”
Snowfall is expected to begin on Friday night and will intensify into Saturday and Sunday. Local highways, including I-25 and I-80, may be shut down late Saturday into Sunday.
