Our "Snow Event" Is Now A Winter Weather Advisory

Our

Regional travel is likely to be affected during the storm.

Whatever happens, the best news is April snow doesn't last for long and spring will get back on track before we know it!

After the storm hits, in South Dakota and Minnesota, rivers will see moderate to major flooding after the snow melts.

Early on Wednesday morning, thundersnow was reported in Pierre and surrounding parts of South Dakota, as well as southern Minnesota.

According to CBS Denver, the National Weather Service issued a blizzard warning for the counties of South Larimer, Arapahoe, Adams, Southwest Weld, Elbert, Douglas, Broomfield and Denver counties for Wednesday.

"Damage is going to be in the hundreds of millions", tribal spokesman Chase Iron Eyes said.

"Winds will increase Wednesday night with gusts of 45 to 55 miles per hour by Thursday", according to the Weather Service. Over 1000 flights have been canceled for Wednesday and schools throughout Colorado have closed. There's a storm on the way that's going to remind Midwesterners that winter isn't over until it's over. When that happens, very strong surface winds develop, he says.

And to top things off, wind gusts are expected to be as high as 45 miles per hour.




This would be the second time in less than a month a storm of this magnitude has developed in the Plains. So, the whole snowmelt will be slowed down. Today will still be a nice spring day, but more seasonable. However, the path is different.

Additional flooding in the Plains by the weekend is likely. More mix of rain and snow/sleet in the Twin Cities, with an inch or two of accumulation.

This storm hits in the middle of next week.

Hall hopes his area will see mostly rain this week, but that still can cause problems on the roads. Sufficient cold air will be in place to the north of that low for a swath of snow in parts of the Plains and Midwest. We also think the need to include Denver proper (and numerous northern/northwestern urban corridor communities) is borderline.

A storm system lifting up into the Great Lakes will generate an extended period of mixed wintry precipitation over northern MI through Friday.

The winter storm watch includes Nicollet, Le Sueur, Blue Earth, Waseca, Rice and Steele counties, in addition to others across the region. It's in effect from Wednesday, April 10 at 7 p.m. until Friday, April 12 at 1 p.m.

"A warmer pattern should begin in the last week of April and continue into May".

"This is the time of year when we get a roller coaster of weather", Colorado state climatologist Russ Schumacher told the Associated Press on April 8.
