DENVER (CBS4)

A powerful spring storm is bringing blizzard conditions to the far northeastern plains. We saw a bit of snow early Friday morning in Denver, but nothing like the plains. Several areas have had power outages, trees downed, and semi trucks knocked over.

We have Blizzard Warnings in place for northeastern Colorado through 6:00 am on Saturday. Travel will be tough, if not impossible through Saturday morning out east.

Winds will also be relentless through Saturday for many areas. While they will eventually calm down a bit, still expect very strong winds through at least midnight on Friday. A High Wind Warning is in place for eastern Colorado.

For Denver, Greeley, Boulder and Fort Collins some occasional snow showers rotating in from the east are possible by this evening. A few quick inches could accumulate under the heavier bands, especially south and east of Denver.

We’ll see the snow clear very quickly from the plains on Saturday morning. After that, cool temperatures and we’ll still be windy.

Warmer and a bit calmer on Sunday with highs in the 60s.
