DENVER (AP) Snow is falling in Colorado's High Country and light rain is falling along the Front Range.

Scott Entrekin of the National Weather Service said snow was reported Monday at the Eisenhower Tunnel, Leadville and other places along the Continental Divide. Rain is causing minor problems in areas on the Front Range ravaged by floods over the past week and a half, but there are no flood watches in effect.

Ryan Drake of the Colorado Department of Transportation says chain laws are being enforced for trucks on Interstate-70 and mountain passes, but no highways have been closed because of the snow.

On Sunday, a storm closed streets and highways around Durango and La Plata County, and in Byers, the Riot Fest outdoor music festival was evacuated because of severe weather.
