Significant winter storm predicted for this week

Potential Winter Storm For SE Wyoming Wednesday

"We'll go 2 - 6" for Denver at this time and count on a relatively quick changeover in the city.

As for how much snowfall might accumulate, forecasters say that's still uncertain for some areas - but that overall, the snow totals could be similar to last month's blizzard. From Denver north (Thornton, Longmont, Fort Collins) we think we may end up seeing more rain than snow.

"It's essentially a thunderstorm, but it's cold enough for snow", Connelly said.

Moderate to heavy snow is likely to arrive Wednesday evening. "Really think about whether you need to travel", the South Dakota public safety tweeted Wednesday.

This will be a WINDY system. Sustained winds as high as 40 to 50 miles per hour are possible in this region Wednesday, with gusts as high as 70 miles per hour. The GFS is even windier, with some areas forecast to see sustained winds in excess of 40mph for a time.

"The already massive storm will continue to gain strength across the nation's heartland into Thursday, bringing everything from damaging winds to blizzard conditions, flooding rain and severe weather", the weather outlet stated. Blowing snow will dramatically hinder visibility and roads will become slushy, icy and snow packed in many areas.

The storm is also expected to cause flooding and snow in several other states, including Idaho, Montana, Nebraska and Wyoming. "This will lead to widespread blowing and drifting snow and blizzard conditions across west-central Minnesota".

An epic storm in the central part of the United States is forecasted to cause blizzards in states like South Dakota, Colorado and Minnesota and wildfire conditions in New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma over the next few days.

Though it's technically spring, it clearly may be a while before certain parts of the country get to enjoy warmer weather. We also think the need to include Denver proper (and numerous northern/northwestern urban corridor communities) is borderline.

This includes all of the Twin Cities metro area. We may, in fact, see a little sunshine during the day but with windy conditions.

"We usually get a winter storm sometime in April", the National Weather Service's Kari Fleegel told South Dakota Public Broadcasting 's Gary Ellenbolt. Not a huge severe threat it appears, but certainly some hail will be possible with some of the stronger cells that develop. Minneapolis may see a foot of snow. If you're still seeing rain Wednesday evening, you're nearly certain to see the low end of our snowfall forecast for your area, if that.
