The snow will move out Saturday night leaving Sunday quieter but cool with highs in the mid 30s. This will lead to whiteout conditions, making travel extremely risky. While central NY is set to hit the mid-70s, Syracuse temperatures will likely top out around 40 degrees.

A powerful spring snow storm has caused multiple road closures on Colorado's eastern plains.

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning is in effect from 1 p.m. Friday to 7p.m. Saturday for a good portion of western and central Nebraska. Winds, likely to reach speeds between 50 and 80 miles per hour, could bring white out conditions to the area.

CSP officials also said every north and south highway in northeast Colorado is closed due to snow, wind or both.

In north central Nebraska, there were thunderstorms and a chance for hail.

An April storm is bringing risky winter weather conditions to the upper midwest, making driving unsafe or even impossible in some areas.

The risk for "violent storms" will increase in those areas Saturday into Sunday night.

Denver and the Front Range will see scattered snow showers along with wind and cold to end the week but no significant accumulations are expected.

Devan Tucking with the Kansas Department of Emergency Management talks with KSNT News about upcoming severe weather April 13, 2018. It warns "dry air combine with increasing" winds will create "conditions more conducive to fire growth and spread this afternoon and early evening".
