Winter is on track to return to Kiowa County and other parts of southern Colorado  this weekend, after a storm a week ago brought eight or more inches of wet snow to the area.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory covering Kiowa, Prowers, Bent, Otero, Crowley and Pueblo counties from 6:00 p.m. Saturday until noon Sunday.

From two to four inches of fresh snow expected from the storm, with the greatest accumulation expected in eastern Kiowa County as an upper level disturbance moves east across the area.

An advisory is also in effect for Cheyenne, Kit Carson and Yuma counties.
