A system producing heavy snow in the central mountains arrives in SE Colorado overnight Sunday into Monday bringing moisture, windy conditions and colder temperatures. Snow showers will be possible across the I-25 corridor to start the day. This system will produce bands of snow through the day Monday. Areas under these bands will see periods of heavy snowfall which, with windy conditions, could create travel difficulties. Several inches of accumulation will be possible in areas where these bands develop. For more information click the ‘Weather’ tab...
A weekend storm increased the snowpack in several river basins but also brought cold weather and caused dozens of avalanches.
Statewide the snowpack increased from 76% on Friday to 80% this morning. That's 36% more snow than on the same date last year.
The Natural Resources Conservation Service says cold temperatures will delay the melting of the snowpack and likely delay the onset of the wildfire season.
Snow is likely in the high country throughout the week.
