DENVER (AP) -- About 250 miles of highways in eastern and northeastern Colorado have reopened after a winter storm and high winds prompted authorities to halt traffic.

Parts of eastern Colorado remained under a high wind warning or a high wind advisory Monday. The National Weather Service canceled a blizzard warning issued earlier in the day.

Nearly 350 miles of highways were closed Monday morning and about 100 miles remained closed in the afternoon. Eastbound Interstate 70 from Denver to Kansas was among the highways that reopened.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says avalanche danger is high in the northern San Juan Mountains, Steamboat Springs and the Flat Tops Mountains.
