Snow in the forecast through the weekend

Meteorologists expect two more storms to hit the Midwest and Northeast starting Wednesday, just days after Winter Storm Gia dumped more than a foot of snow over much of the same area.

The Cheyenne Office of the National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for the Sierra Madre and a winter weather advisory for the Snowy Range mountains through 5 p.m. on Friday. Models continue to strongly indicate a wintry mix late Saturday and through Sunday.

The 41 Action News weather team says snow accumulations in the metro could range from one to four inches, with higher amounts to the north. Strong winds gusting to between 30 and 40 miles per hour are also expected and will contribute to areas of blowing and drifting snow, especially near Lake Erie. "Conditions over interior New England could approach blizzard criteria as the storm brings very strong northerly winds together with heavy snow", the NWS said. Mixed precipitation is likely to stretch along the I-95 corridor from Washington to Boston. Travel will be very hard and hazardous Saturday night through Sunday afternoon, along with poor visibility.

'Heavy snow will begin by Friday evening over the central plains and then progress eastward by the weekend, ' the NWS advised. Any accumulations should be relatively light with 1 inch to 2 inches possible. Wind chills are below 0!
