northwest Kansas and east central Colorado.

.DAY ONE…THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT…

A powerful storm system will bring a large variety of weather to the
area through the overnight hours. Snow will begin across eastern
Colorado this afternoon and overspread into portions of northwest
Kansas and southwest Nebraska. Snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches is
expected in this area and strong winds gusting to 55 mph will create

will bring near critical fire weather conditions.
