Blizzard conditions close multiple roads in eastern Colorado

A "Blizzard Warning" from the weather service means "severe winter weather conditions ae expected or occurring".

High wind warnings and blizzard warnings have been issued across eastern Colorado and western Kansas.

Saturday: Showers are likely with a high near 48 degrees.

A cold front expected to sweep in late Sunday and into Monday will bring temperatures down to just a little below usual for April as well as some heavy rain, according to local forecasts.

Risky fire weather conditions in Oklahoma contributed to wildfires that forced hundreds of people to evacuate their homes near Woodward, about 125 miles (200 kilometers) northeast of Oklahoma City.

Temperatures along the Front Range will top out around 40 degrees, a almost 40-degree drop from yesterday's high temp of 79 in Denver.

The electric carmaker issued the statement blaming Huang, after his family had hired a law firm to explore legal options for them. In a letter sent to Tesla , the agency referred to statements made by the automaker "on or about April 10" regarding the crash.

For Sioux City, and the rest of central, southern, and eastern Siouxland, we've been put into a Winter Storm Watch from Friday night into Saturday evening as the National Weather Service waits to decide if these areas will reach blizzard criteria and whether or not we'll eventually also see a Blizzard Warning.

As North Platte and the surrounding area awaits predicted blizzard conditions, the weather is already starting to deteriorate.

Those to the south can expect severe thunderstorms in the forecast as well as "the potential for a few tornadoes".

"There will be a chance for lingering thunderstorms across portions of the outlook area on Saturday".

Winds are expected to shift to the northwest and they'll be gusting up to 30 to 40 miles-an-hour with some peak gusts of 50 to 60 miles-an-hour, and with dry conditions there will continue to be an extreme fire danger in south central Kansas for Friday.
