Denver (AP) Winter storms are pounding Colorado’s mountains and more snow is expected.
The National Weather Service says up to 8 inches of snow have fallen in the north-central mountains. The eastbound lanes of Vail Pass on interstate 70 were closed Tuesday morning because of bad weather.
Colorado’s western mountains are getting heavy snow and a winter storm warning is in effect for the high elevations of the eastern San Juan mountains and the La Garita mountains, which could get 1 to 2 feet of new snow. That includes Wolf Creek and Cumbres passes.
Forecasts of strong winds with gusts up to 50 mph raised concerns about blowing and drifting snow.
Up to 4 inches of snow were expected to fall in parts of the Denver Metro area Tuesday.
