Blizzard and High Wind Warnings remain for eastern Colorado

Big blizzard headed this way: up to 55 mph winds, 11 inches or more of snow

A powerful spring blizzard swept into the state Friday, first smacking the Panhandle and central Nebraska before threatening northeastern counties. Gusting winds and heavy snow is creating white out conditions in these areas and could make travel risky.

Four to 6 inches of snow is expected with significant drifting.

A blizzard warning was issued Friday for the far northeast plains, and a winter weather advisory was in place in the mountains, the National Weather Service in Boulder reported. The rain then began changing over to snow in Northwest Kansas, and a few flurries could fall across the Southwest.

A high wind warning that went into effect Friday morning in much of southeastern Colorado, including El Paso County, was expected to remain in place in the county until 3 p.m. Saturday, the National Weather Service in Pueblo reported.

A road conditions report said most roads in the Nebraska Panhandle to east of Valentine in the northern part of the state were impassable because of heavy snow cover.

A tweet from the Sioux County (Iowa) Sheriff's Office on Friday said, "Please prepare now and be ready to halt travel later Friday & Saturday for a unsafe winter storm".

The patrol and other agencies also helped more than 100 motorists who became stranded on I-80 near Sidney, ferrying them from their vehicles using Sidney Public Schools buses escorted by patrol cruisers and snow plows.
