Wednesday’s blizzard could be Colorado’s strongest storm in decades

Young livestock could be in high danger during the heart of calving season.

Some models show the storm’s pressure dropping as low as 970 millibars, potentially beating the state’s lowest barometric pressure in state history, which is believed to be around 972 millibars.

Winds could push 80 mph in Colorado’s eastern plains, according to the National Weather Service, and could inflict serious damage, major travel disruptions and power outages.

  1. sounds nasty, hope they can manage shelter for the young stock
    as well as aged horses and others who suffer badly in cold weather.

  2. The winter of 1886-1887 was brutal with cold and sever blizzards.
    On the great plains millions of cattle perished.
    It will be interesting to see how this winter ranks with previous bad ones.

  3. Could you all not post a link where they require you to delete any ad-block? Use links that don’t tell us what to do?
