(SOUTHERN COLORADO) — Snow will move in from the west on Tuesday afternoon, Feb. 14, and will gradually progress east into early Wednesday morning, Feb. 15, when moderate to heavy snow will be falling during the morning commute along the Front Range and heart of the viewing area.
Wednesday will be a challenging travel day across Southern Colorado.
Winter Storm Warnings go up from west to east from Tuesday afternoon into the evening and last through Wednesday for most areas.
On Wednesday, the heaviest snow will shift east over the plains south of Highway 50. Wednesday night’s snow will decrease from west to east and end by sunrise Thursday morning, Feb. 16.
Even after the snow decreases, there will be enough wind east of the mountains to make blowing and drifting snow a continued issue for travelers with reduced visibility expected throughout the day.
Here’s how much snow we expect. Use the arrows on the slideshow below to zoom in on different areas of Southern Colorado for more detail.
