A Colorado low is an area of low pressure that forms in southeastern Colorado or northeastern New Mexico.

These low's typically form in the winter months.

After forming, the system moves across the Great Plains.

Colorado lows usually produce heavy wintry precipitation, and have a general east to northeast movement, impacting regions as far north as Winnipeg and as far east as the Atlantic coast.

If upper level conditions are right, the jet stream can push the low farther south, bringing wintry precipitation as far as Texas.
