The snow brought its A-game after some Saturday rain and light flurries. 

The National Weather Service has issued a blizzard warning until midnight in Fort Collins, with snow causing power outages in some areas. 


Poudre Valley REA estimated there are 2,900 reported outages as of 8:45 p.m., down from 9,200. 

The NWS estimated about 1 to 2 feet will likely fall with “the heaviest snow totals along the I-25 corridor will be from Boulder north through the Fort Collins area,” according to a public alert. Winds are expected to anywhere between 35 and 45 mph, posing a lack of visibility. 

Colorado State University closed campus on Saturday and Sunday in preparation for the snow. A notification was sent out by the University informing students, faculty and staff that “all activities” will be canceled on Monday, March 15.  

Additionally, Fort Collins facilities will be closed tomorrow, including the Transfort bus service.
