Another Round of Snow for Wyoming and Colorado Today
Another round of snow is expected across portions of Wyoming and Colorado today as a low pressure system pushes across the Rockies and into the Southern Plains. Snowfall amounts of up to 9 inches will be possible with isolated heavier amounts into the higher elevations. Of course this next round of winter weather only comes a few days after a major winter storm rolled through the Plains.

Spring may officially be here, but winter isn’t letting up just yet, especially across portions of the Rockies and Plains. Moderate to heavy snow will be likely again on Wednesday across most of Colorado along with parts of New Mexico, Kansas and the Panhandles of Texas and Oklahoma. Snowfall totals up to a foot will be possible across southeast Colorado. Otherwise, totals across most areas will average between 3 to 6 inches. Cold air is also expected to settle in behind the cold front on Wednesday with temperatures as much as 30 degrees below normal across parts of Colorado, Texas, Oklahoma and Kansas.
In advance of the cold front, conditions will be favorable for isolated strong to severe thunderstorms to develop. The main threats look to be hail and high winds. Right now it looks like the severe threat will be minimal.
Of course, many people are just ready to get the cold weather behind them and for temperatures to start warming up. However, with the warmer spring weather on the way, this also starts to kick severe weather season into full force.
