March 13, 2019

The Denver metro area is bracing for the brunt of a big shot of winter.  The National Weather Service has a blizzard warning in effect in portions of the region, starting at 10 a.m. this morning.  Rain is expected to turn to snow, and the system will be bringing gusty winds reaching as high as 60 miles-per-hour.  The storm could dump as much as eight inches of snow in spots by the time it blows out.  The heaviest bands are expected to be east of the I-25 corridor. 

A number of major school districts around the metro area are closed today due to winter weather.  Those include Denver Public Schools, Aurora Public Schools and the Cherry Creek School District.  Douglas County Schools will also be closed.  The strong winter storm is expected to hamper the ability for people to get around the city.  

A large amount of flights have also been canceled in and out of Denver for today.  In addition to travel issues, the storm could cause power outages.
