Denver weather today: Blizzards continue in northeast Colorado

Potentially life-threatening weather conditions will continue in northeast Colorado through Tuesday as a strong winter storm causes severe blizzard weather.

A blizzard warning is in effect for most northeast counties. Winds could gust up to 60 mph while snow is falling, causing near-zero visibility and whiteout conditions.

Snowfall totals in the northeast plains could exceed eight inches, and most major highways are closed due to safety concerns.

 

The Front Range will see less snow than the plains, but the snow that does fall could impact the morning commute, according to forecasters at the National Weather Service in Boulder.

Denver will reach a high of 33 degrees Tuesday, with wind gusts up to 28 mph, and will stay cloudy even after the snow stops. The low Tuesday night will be 22 degrees.

The snow will gradually diminish across the lower elevations by late afternoon. Lingering showers, mainly over the northeast plains, could continue through early evening.

The mountains are also getting heavy snow through Tuesday into Wednesday, and high winds could persist there as well.

Travel may be hazardous, especially for the mountain passes where it will be windy and snow-covered.
