However, winter storms often bring heavy snow, bitterly cold temperatures, high winds, low visibility and other life-threatening situations such as avalanches and frigid wind chill temperatures.

NOAA's National Weather Service (NWS) alerts you to these hazards with watches, warnings, and advisories. To help you prepare and inform you for winter, the NWS Denver/Boulder Weather Forecast Office offers a hazards page for northeastern Colorado, which shows the latest conditions, forecasts, storm reports, and more.
