Storm Impact Index

 

IMPACTS: For anyone traveling, expect snow and wind to create slick roads and difficult driving conditions at times, especially at pass level. Rapidly accumulating snow could produce slushy roads and slow travel along portions of Interstates 80, 90, and 25. 

Those with outdoor interests should also be prepared for much colder, wet, and windy conditions.

The low wind chills, gusty winds, and cold, wet conditions will also have an impact on newborn livestock through tonight. In addition, a hard freeze could damage sensitive newly budded vegetation overnight tonight.
