A very active winter weather pattern will dominate the headlines across the nation this week. Snow impacted the Monday morning commute, but skies will clear from north to south as the storm swirls into the central plains with strong northerly winds and cold temperatures.

Blizzard conditions are to be expected over the Midwest from this storm system and travel will be very difficult from Kansas to Minnesota through Tuesday. Colorado will have improving weather on the backside of the storm, although several more inches of snow can be expected over the central and northern mountains through Tuesday.

Wednesday will see a break in the moisture, with mild temperatures and calmer winds. Highs will be in the upper 30s to 40s in the afternoon, ahead of a blast of arctic air.

An Arctic cold front will move into the central Rockies Thursday and will bring much colder air and snow. The cold will remain through the weekend along with periods of snow.
