A large portion of the Rockies and the High Plains are going to be under the gun for high winds, the chance of snow, and the risk of wildfires, delivering a cornucopia of weather conditions over the weekend.

Here are the details of this potentially dangerous forecast.

Strong Winds, Snow, and Cold Temperatures for Rockies and High Plains

It could be a rocky weekend for the Rockies and beyond. The same storm system that brought snow and cold temperatures to the interior West during the middle of the week is going to push into the Rocky Mountains and over into the High Plains in the coming days.

The incoming front will whip up the winds, creating the chance of widespread power outages. There is also the chance of snow that could complicate travel.

Despite the forecast of snow, the winds could also create the risk of wildfire danger. This means that the region needs to be prepared for a variety of weather conditions.
