Major Winter Weather Event Setting Up Over Rockies and Beyond

8 months ago

A winter storm is brewing across much of the northern tier of the U.S. to close out the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Who may see this accumulating snow and how cold will it get? Read on for the details of this wintry forecast.

Winter Storm Taking Shape Over North-Central U.S.

A number of U.S. cities, including Denver, Detroit, and Chicago, are in the potential impact zone of a far-reaching winter storm that is developing over the north-central U.S. this week. The incoming mass of Arctic air will send the mercury plummeting across the central Rockies and Plains, ushering in a significant contrast from Wednesday's unseasonable weather.

It was a great day to run pre-Thanksgiving errands on Wednesday in the Plains and the central Rockies. Temperatures soared to near 70 degrees in Denver, Cheyenne, and beyond. These readings are about to take a big nosedive as a blast of Arctic air is coming together just north of the Canadian border.

For instance, residents in Denver will see temperature readings that fall into the upper teens on Thursday night, replacing the highs in the mid 60s on Wednesday. The dramatic shift in temperatures will migrate to the south, impacting the Texas Panhandle by Friday morning.
