URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver/Boulder CO
415 PM MDT Fri Apr 28 2017

...AREAS OF HEAVY SNOW TONIGHT...

.A Spring storm system will bring snow to eastern Colorado
tonight into Saturday. Periods of heavy snow are expected from
the Front Range foothills across the Denver metro area and Palmer
Divide and into southeastern Colorado and western Kansas. Further
north the snow will be lighter, but several inches of wet snow
are expected. Roads will become snow covered during the periods of
heavier snow. Wet snow accumulating on trees that have already
leafed out may also result in broken tree limbs and scattered
power outages.

The snow will end from northwest to southeast on Saturday. There
is some uncertainty on the speed the storm will exit, so heavier
snow is possible on the eastern plains if the storm moves more
slowly.
