Freezing rain and drizzle were reported across the Tri-State area
this morning through the early afternoon, with snow across
eastern Colorado. Ice accumulations up to one quarter inch have
been reported over parts of northwest Kansas, and 3 inches of snow
was measured at Yuma, Colorado. Winds have generally ranged from
20 to 30 mph and occasional gusts around 35 mph. Temperatures at
2 PM MST (3 PM MST) ranged from 25 at Flagler, Colorado to 37 at
Hill City, Kansas.

OUTLOOK... A significant winter storm is expect to impact the
Central High Plains this evening through early Monday morning.
Heavy snow and blowing snow leading to whiteout conditions will
make travel dangerous if not impossible. Snow totals could reach
6 to 10 inches with locally higher amounts along and north of
Interstate 70 in eastern Colorado, northwest Kansas, and southwest
Nebraska. The band of heavy snow will extend north to Interstate
80 in Nebraska. While snow tapers off Monday morning, gusty winds
may continue to create reduced visibilities in blowing snow
through midday Monday for some locations. Dry conditions and a
gradual warming trend are expected through mid week.
