Colorado braces for another blizzard

April 9, 2019

DENVER (AP) — It looks like northeast Colorado, including the Denver metro area, could be in for another blizzard.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning, effective noon Wednesday to noon Thursday.

Up to 8 inches (20.3 centimeters) of snow and winds gusting as high as 60 mph (96.5 kph) are possible for the area, which also includes Fort Collins, Greeley, Fort Morgan and Limon.

Winter storm warnings are posted for surrounding areas, including Boulder, Estes Park, Steamboat Springs, Vail and Aspen. Some mountain areas could receive a foot (30.5 centimeters) or more of snow.

The storm comes after a blizzard struck much of the same area of the state last month.
