URGENT - WINTER WEATHER MESSAGE
National Weather Service Denver CO
1147 AM MDT Tue Apr 9 2019

...STRONG WINTER STORM EXPECTED TO MOVE IN WEDNESDAY...

.Very warm temperatures are expected today, ahead of a developing upper level storm system moving over the Great Basin. Drastic changes in the weather are expected to occur on Wednesday as a strong cold front will race across northeast Colorado which will bring much colder temperatures, strong north winds and heavy snow. Areas of heavy snowfall across the Front Range to the far eastern plains and strong winds will result in poor visibility and difficult driving conditions. Temperatures plummeting will result in icy roads. Residents of northeast Colorado should begin making preparations for this developing storm to avoid being caught by harsh winter conditions.
