COLORADO, USA — A strong storm system arrived in Colorado on Wednesday, bringing heavy snow to most of our mountain communities and extreme wind gusts across the state.
Colorado's southwestern mountains could get up to 16 inches of snow in some areas. Denver and the eastern plains will see strong winds and the chance of some morning rain or snow showers.
