A "fast moving but potent winter storm system" is expected to hit Colorado Tuesday evening and Wednesday, says the National Weather Service.

Warm weather across northeast Colorado will give way to cold temperatures Wednesday, says NWS, allowing rain and snow to develop in time for the Wednesday morning commute.

Strong winds are also expected to spread across the northeast Colorado plains, "which will cause blowing and drifting snow," says NWS.

"Poor travel conditions are expected on the plains due to the blowing and drifting snow. Road closures may be possible," reads a NWS bulletin.
