According to the National Weather Service, a potent storm system is organizing over the Great Basin late Wednesday afternoon and will track across the four corners region overnight and then east across southeast Colorado on Thursday. A strong circulation around this storm system will likely produce moderate to heavy snowfall from the front range east to the Kansas border. In addition, the plains should see strong and gusty northeast winds developing Thursday morning following the passage of a strong cold front. The high mountain passes and Palmer Divide area may see near blizzard conditions during the afternoon and evening hours.
