...ON THIS DATE IN WEATHER HISTORY...

In 2009, a strong cold front moved across the High Plains resulting
in northwest winds of 30 to 40 mph gusting to 60 mph at some
locations.
The surface low intensified as it moved into Kansas, producing
blizzard conditions across portions of extreme eastern Colorado,
northwest Kansas, and southwest Nebraska. At times, visibility
dropped to an eighth of a mile from blowing snow and 4 to 5 foot
drifts were reported.
Interstate 70 remained closed for approximately 6 hours overnight
from the Colorado Kansas border west to Aurora, Colorado due to
adverse conditions. Snow totals around the area ranged from 2 to 5
inches.
