Continuing to track rain/snow showers throughout southeast Colorado this morning as wet, gloomy and cool conditions continue. If you are hitting the roads in the higher elevation (Teller/Fremont/Custer/ Monument) make sure you allow a little extra time as some roads may be a little snow covered. Wet pavement remains everywhere else. We'll see rain/snow showers continue for most of our Monday, clearing out before midnight. Head on over to the "Weather" tab for a full look at the week ahead.
A winter storm is hitting Colorado Tuesday and Wednesday, making for very difficult travel problems across much of the state. On Tuesday evening, I-25 was closed for a while north of Monument because of numerous accidents. The northbound lanes reopened around 5 p.m. and the southbound lanes reopened shortly after 6 p.m.
The storm also dumped up to eleven inches of snow in the mountains and forced early dismissals at schools in northeastern Colorado.
Ice and blowing snow in Weld County and wintry weather in rural districts in Logan, Washington and Yuma counties prompted schools to dismiss students early.
In Aspen, there is about a foot of snow on the top of Aspen Mountain, Aspen Highlands and Snowmass.
Meanwhile transportation officials say traffic on Interstate 70 is slow on both sides of the Eisenhower Tunnel.
