One of the few snowy stormfronts so far this winter is about to hit the central U.S., but snow-starved areas in the north -- from Minnesota to New England -- won't be getting any.
The Denver area should see snow start by Thursday night and into Friday for a total of up to 14 inches, NBC affiliate KUSA-TV reported.
Iowa, Kansas, Nebraska and Wyoming will also feel the system, weather.com reported.
Much of the United States has been enjoying unseasonably warm weather, and it has many people asking whatever happened to winter? NBC's Anne Thompson looks at the "why" behind the wacky winter weather.
"If you have travel plans along I-80, I-70 and I-25 from late Thursday through Friday night across the states mentioned above, you may want to hold off. The combination of snow and gusty winds will make travel dangerous," wrote weather.com meteorologist Chris Dolce. "Blizzard conditions are expected Thursday night through Friday night or early Saturday in parts of eastern Colorado, northwest Kansas, western and central Nebraska!"
Drought-hit Texas and Oklahoma can expect rain from the system, Dolce added.
The storm will slowly move east into the weekend, with rain in the South and Ohio Valley and some snow in a few Midwest areas.
But the Northern Plains and the Northeast won't see much, if any, impact.
How snow-impaired are some cities in those regions? Weather.com noted these stats for seasonal snow-to-date:
- Cincinnati has had 2 inches -- 17 percent of average;
