Park Place Technologies Preparing Resources to Serve Rockies, High Plains Clients in Path of ‘Historic’ Winter Storm
March 12, 2021
CLEVELAND, OH, March 12 — Park Place Technologies is taking proactive steps to serve central Rockies and High Plains clients who may be impacted by a significant winter storm this weekend. This slow-moving system has the potential to produce the biggest snowfall in decades for the eastern Rockies and western Plains through the weekend. Nearly 20 million people may be impacted on Friday alone.
“The snowfall totals currently forecast are absolutely historic,” the National Weather Service reported.
According to the National Weather Service:
- Snowfall amounts of a couple of feet are possible along the Front Range of Colorado and Wyoming.
- More than a foot of snow is possible over the central High Plains.
- Increasingly strong and gusty winds are expected to accompany the heavy snow by Sunday as the storm system is forecast to intensify more rapidly.
- Widespread travel impacts are likely as strong winds combined with snowfall rates of one to two inches per hour could produce near-blizzard conditions.
- Power outages are expected.
- Winter Storm Watches and Warnings have been issued for the central Rockies to the central High Plains.
- Strong to severe thunderstorms are forecast to move across the southern Plains during the weekend ahead of a strong cold front associated with the intensifying low-pressure system.
- As the storm moves east, other states — such as Arkansas, Oklahoma, Kentucky, and Indiana — have the potential for flooding.
