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.

Driving conditions across Colorado, particularly in the southeast, will be dangerous throughout the day as a winter storm blows through the state.

The Colorado Department of Transportation had 451 snow plows working to clear roads as of 8:30 a.m. Saturday.  Southeast Colorado roads were icy, with blowing snow reducing visibility. Traffic cameras throughout the area showed snow accumulation on highway surfaces, though few closures have been reported.
