Discussion

Strong low pressure centered just east of California this morning will move east over the next 24 hours and it will become an all-out blizzard for the central Plains on Thursday and bring significant accumulating snow to the southern Rockies as well. Snow may develop this afternoon, but the full brunt will occur tonight and early tomorrow with total accumulations by late tomorrow morning on the order of 4-8 inches. Winds will also be a factor with gusts to 25 mph or so causing some blowing and drifting during the storm. Once this system does move to our east, our weather will dry out, but stay on the cold side to close out the work week.
