Winter weather returns to Colorado

As winter weather returns to Colorado, residents of the Centennial State are bracing for what may be a particularly difficult season.

The National Weather Service is forecasting a prolonged period of cold temperatures and significant snowfall for much of the state. While this is typical for this time of year, the NWS warns that the severity of the weather could be greater than in previous years.

The NWS has issued a warning for severe winter conditions that could last well into March. This alert is based on predictions of a combination of colder-than-normal temperatures and higher-than-average snowfall.

The cold weather is expected to impact much of the state, with the Front Range, the eastern plains, and the mountains all expected to experience below-normal temperatures. The NWS anticipates that the coldest temperatures could reach well into the teens.

The NWS is also expecting more snow this winter than in previous years. The Front Range and the mountains are likely to be the hardest hit, with accumulations of up to two feet of snow possible in some locations. The eastern plains could receive four to six inches of snow.

The cold weather and snowfall could create hazardous conditions for residents and travelers alike. The NWS urges people to exercise extra caution when driving in these conditions, especially on mountain roads. They also advise that people dress in layers to protect themselves from the cold.
