More snow coming for northwest Kansas

Another October snowstorm is battering Colorado and bearing down on northwest Kansas.

The National Weather Service in Goodland has issued a winter weather advisory until 7 a.m. Friday for portions of Kansas, Colorado and Nebraska.

Snow and blowing snow is expected, with snowfall amounts ranging from 2 to 4 inches. North winds of 20 to 30 miles an hour will cause blowing and drifting snow, with reduced visibilities.

Kansas counties included in the advisory are Cheyenne, Sherman and Rawlins. Among the cities included are Goodland, Atwood and St. Francis.

The storm system had dumped nearly 44 inches of snow in the foothills of the Rockies northwest of Denver, from 15 to 25 inches on the urban corridor along the front range and 8 to 15 inches in eastern Colorado.

I-70 is currently closed between Burlington and Denver.
