48-Hour Snow Forecast

48-Hour Snow Forecast

Virgil's snow will stay mostly over the northern and central Rockies as upper-level energy sweeps across the region on Friday.

This energy then emerges into the central Plains Friday night into Saturday, where we expect snow and increasing winds to develop in parts of Colorado, Wyoming, Kansas and Nebraska. Significant travel impacts are possible on stretches of I-80, I-70, I-76 and I-25 in these states.

The Denver metro area will likely see accumulations of five inches or more from Virgil. Heavier amounts are expected in the foothills.

Saturday's Severe Threat

By Saturday evening, snow will spread as far east as northern Missouri, including the Kansas City metro area.

In Virgil's warm sector, we'll be watching parts of the South for a significant threat of severe storms capable of producing tornadoes Saturday into Saturday night. For more information on this threat, click here.

Saturday night through Sunday, Virgil will spread its snow eastward across the Midwest and into the central Appalachians. We detail that portion of the forecast next.
