The storm is shaping up to be the second rare bomb cyclone to hit the state in as many months.

Warm spring temperatures will give way to heavy snow, gale-force winds and life-threatening conditions across a swath of the central United States running from Colorado to Minnesota over the next two days, the National Weather Service said. Moderate to heavy snowfall is looking more likely over parts of the area, and a Winter Storm WATCH has been issued for parts of the area, shaded in blue in the map above.

Much of eastern Colorado is bracing for another round of wintry weather, which includes a blizzard warning for northeastern Colorado, north of the Palmer Divide, and a Winter Storm Warning for Teller County. Areas of blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility.

Mixed precipitation of rain, snow and sleet will be possible at times along and south of a line from New Ulm, the Twin Cities metro, to Rice Lake, Wisconsin. Brainerd had 15 inches of snow April 10, 2008; 6.3 inches of snow April 11, 2013; and 3.5 inches of snow April 12, 1983. Rain will turn to snow Wednesday.

Expect snow to start in the mountains on Wednesday morning, with dry conditions in the Denver area about noon.
