A storm system is pushing across the central Plains today (Thursday), bringing a round of accumulating snow from the Front Range to the Mississippi River. Winter weather alerts have been issued for parts of Colorado, Nebraska, and Kansas. 2" to 6" of snow will accumulate, with isolated areas in the Winter Storm Warning seeing 5" to 9". Roads may become slippery in some areas, creating travel issues.
Snow will continue to spread across the region throughout the day. With the system moving quickly, most of the accumulations will occur in a 3 to 6 hour period. The snow will be finished falling by early Friday morning. Motorists are encouraged to check ahead on weather conditions and be prepared for slower travel.
