Parts of the central Rocky Mountains are bracing for a strong winter storm Tuesday night through Wednesday morning. As the system moves into Eastern Colorado late Tuesday, it will rapidly intensify. The northern mountains of the Rockies appear to receive the highest amount of accumulation, with near a foot possible. The lower elevations could also see two to six inches of snow.
The snow is not the only problem with this system. During it’s intensification, wind speeds will pick up 25 to 40 mph with possible gusts up to 55 mph. The winds will be highest Wednesday morning and could cause blowing snow to reduce visibility. Morning commuters may have a hard time navigating the storm.
