...STRONG WINTER STORM EXPECTED TO MOVE IN WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON...

.Very warm temperatures are expected on Tuesday, ahead of a developing upper level storm system moving over the Great Basin. Drastic changes in the weather are expected to occur on Wednesday. A strong cold front will be moving over northeast Colorado during the afternoon which will bring much colder temperatures, gusty north winds and rain changing over to snow. This storm system will have many similarities to the strong storm that moved over northeast Colorado back in mid-March. Although, snow amounts and wind speeds may not be as strong as the March storm, residents of northeast Colorado should begin making preparations for this developing storm to avoid being caught by hazardous weather conditions.

Expanded to include more of Park County and now Jefferson County as well. Per our Chief Meteorologist Steve Hamilton:
Winter Storm Watch: Fairplay / Jefferson / Como / Alma...
It's looking like we'll be getting more snow across the foothills, and into eastern Colorado as well. A strong low will be developing tomorrow, then trekking across the state Wednesday afternoon into Thursday. All-snow is likely for Jefferson, Fairplay, Como and Alma, with a mix of rain and snow elsewhere. Here's the catch: Depending on the exact track of the low, temperatures will either remain warm enough for a rain/snow mix for the rest of the foothills, or possibly all-snow. Tuesday's model runs should reveal more of those details. In any case, precipitation is likely along with gusty wind and much colder temperatures.

@NWSBoulder: Wondering when your snow will start? This morning in the mountains, early afternoon in the foothills and I-25 urban corridor, and mid afternoon on the plains. Foothills and plains will see it begin as rain, then switch over. #cowx
