It hasn’t stopped snowing yet in the West. Heavy snow has been causing travel problems with closed roads and accidents. Trees have been damaged with broken branches, which has created power outages in the region as well. One to three feet has fallen in portions of the regions.

Winter Storm Warnings extend from the Front Range of Wyoming into the Rockies of Colorado. The alerts are set to expire later this afternoon or evening as the system moves out of the region.

An additional 3″ to 7″ is possible in this highest elevations through tonight. The foothills and Front Range may see another 2″ to 4″.

The low pressure center has pushed into the Plains. Pockets of heavy snow will be found this morning. Snow will gradually diminish this afternoon and will come to an end later tonight.
