Snow moving north

Watches and Warnings: The National Weather Service has issued many watches and warnings that alert us of an extended winter storm. A Winter Storm Warning has been issued for the San Juan Mountains, Grand and Battlement Mesas, West Elk Mountains, Sawatch Mountains, and the Uncompahgre Plateau. 2 to 4 feet of snow are forecasted for the San Juans, and 1 to 2 feet are possible across the region. A Winter Weather Advisory has also been issued for southwest Colorado in the four corners region and Upper Gunnison River Valley. 2 to 4 inches are possible each night until Monday. Blowing snow will restrict visibility at times, and travel is expected to be impaired through the weekend. An Avalanche Watch is also in effect through the weekend for the Sangre de Cristo Range and San Juan Mountains. Travel along the backcountry could become very dangerous.

Tonight: Snow likely overnight, although significant accumulations not expected in the Grand Valley. Lows will be in the low 30s.

Tomorrow: Look for a cloudy day with a rain/snow mix possible. Highs will be in the low to mid 40s.

Extended: The next week across western Colorado will be very active with snow on and off through Tuesday and even Wednesday. Moisture will focus on the southern mountains through the week. A lull is expected on Sunday, however, snow will pick back up Monday as a closed low pulls more moisture in from the southwest.
