  • Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

A storm can shift directions at any time, which could be the case in the upcoming storm.

By Thursday morning, the heavy snow and strong winds will cause road closures on the northeast plains from just east of Denver through most of western Nebraska and parts of northwest Kansas.

Wesley began dumping snow across the northern and central Rockies, and the northern Plains, Wednesday morning.

The winter storm watch includes Nicollet, Le Sueur, Blue Earth, Waseca, Rice and Steele counties, in addition to others across the region. Both storm number two and storm number three are quick hitting; they combine for abut 4 inches for the southeastern part of the Midwest.

Areas to the east of Laramie, including Cheyenne, are under a Winter Storm Warning and Blizzard Warnings have been issued for the Nebraska panhandle.

A spring storm expected to roll in early Wednesday is expected to bring high winds and blowing snow to Southwest Colorado.

"The more snow we get, the better from this scenario because the water will enter the rivers and tributaries slower than if it was just 2 or 3 inches of rain", Hewitt said.

How does this snowstorm compare to past years? Travelers flying on Wednesday and Thursday can change flights at no charge on some routes.

Depay has also been superb for his country's national team - scoring 16 goals and 12 assists from 46 worldwide appearances. Liverpool host Chelsea in the Premier League on Sunday before going to Porto for the second leg next Wednesday.

Southern Maine will be spared the heaviest of the snow, with less than an inch expected along the immediate coast and 1 to 3 inches further inland, according to Dustin Bork, a meteorologist for CBS affiliate WGME in Portland. Eastbound travel on I-80 could be severely affected. Forecasters in New Mexico said the winds also would make travel hard on north-south oriented roads such as Interstate 25.

Any wet snow to start Thursday (which should only be across the northern half of the area) will continue moving north, and our Thursday afternoon will be dry...great news for the drive home from work, and to the bowling alley if Thursday is your bowling night. "Travel is going to be impossible in some of these areas". "Snow squalls with heavy bands of moisture, high winds and blowing snow will reduce visibility at times".

The snow and mixed precipitation will result in hazardous driving conditions.

Winds will gust up to 45mph.

In Colorado, 1,800 trained snow-removal personnel and 950 maintenance trucks are standing by.

The NWS predicts mostly sunny skies for the weekend with temperatures in the lower to mid-40s. Forecasters said this week's storm will swell rivers again, but maybe not as much. As recent warmer temperatures and rainfall combined with the runoff from the melting snowpack have kept the river levels hovering around flood stage. The latest update predicts falling river levels to stop dropping and level off this week.

Bottom line is that as of right now it looks like travel will be almost impossible across much of our region from Wednesday afternoon through Friday morning.
