Weather closes I-70 in extreme NW Kansas

The Kansas Department of Transportation says Interstate 70 from Goodland to the Colorado border is closed because of winter weather conditions in Colorado and expected snow in western Kansas.

The interstate was closed about 9:30 a.m. Tuesday after parts of the interstate were shut down in eastern Colorado, where snow and high winds were creating blizzard conditions.

A blizzard warning was in effect until 6 p.m. in Sherman and Cheyenne counties in western Kansas. The National Weather Service says snow accumulations of 1 to 5 inches are possible, with light ice accumulations and winds gusting up to 50 mph.
