DENVER (AP) - A late winter storm is bringing snow and cold that canceled classes for several Colorado school districts and made for a slick drive in the mountains.

Multiple accidents Friday morning closed westbound Interstate 70 at Morrison, west of Denver.

Further west, the National Weather Service issued winter storm warnings through 6 a.m. Saturday for cities including Crested Butte, Aspen and Vail, with up to 18 inches of snow possible before it's all over.

Pitkin County officials were reporting icy roads and poor visibility Friday morning in Snowmass Village and on Colorado 82, which links I-70 to Aspen.

Snow also fell along the Front Range on Friday. Denver planned to keep three overflow shelters for the homeless open through the weekend.
