Two Winter Storms to Blast the U.S. with Heavy Snow

Gusty winds are also expected

Two major winter storms will dump heavy snow and blow fierce winds in the Midwest, New England and Southwestern United States in the next couple of days, wreaking havoc on road travel while improving ski conditions in parts of Colorado.

One system was expected to bring more than a foot of snow and wind gusts of more than 40 miles (64 km) an hour to an area from California through Nevada and into Colorado through Thursday afternoon, the National Weather Service (NWS) warned.

Some higher spots in southwestern Colorado could see 3 feet of snow accumulation over the next couple of days, the service said. Hazardous travel conditions due to icy and snow-packed roadways were expected throughout the area, the NWS said.
