Front Range Snow, Wet Plains
As low pressure develops in eastern Colorado by Saturday morning, snow will spread into the Front Range and High Plains of Colorado, Wyoming and western Nebraska.
Depending on the exact track of the storm, accumulating snow and strong, gusty winds could impact both Denver, Colo. and Cheyenne, Wyo. on Saturday. Travel conditions may be poor on stretches of I-70, I-80 and I-25.
Snow will also continue farther to the west in the mountains of Utah, Colorado, Arizona and New Mexico.
In the warm sector of this storm, we will see increasing showers and some thunderstorms in the middle of the country from southern Minnesota and southern Wisconsin southwestward to portions of Texas. This rainfall will be a welcome sight for this stretch of real estate that remains in various degrees of drought.
In addition, isolated severe storms cannot be ruled out from central Kansas into parts of western Texas on Saturday.
Sunday, the cold front will continue to head east.
For most, this storm will likely be more wet than wintry as our Sunday forecast map shows. That said, there could still be a narrow zone of snow in parts of the Midwest on the northwest side of the low-pressure system.
