...ADDITIONAL SNOW POSSIBLE LATE WEDNESDAY NIGHT THROUGH THURSDAY
ACROSS THE COLORADO ROCKIES...

A weather system is expected to move into eastern Utah and western
Colorado from the Pacific Northwest Wednesday night through
Thursday night. The rain snow line is expected to be near 7000
feet Wednesday night before the rain snow line drops throughout
the day Thursday. Forecast models have backed the start time of
widespread precipitation to late Wednesday night across the western
Colorado mountains, with the heaviest snow expected Thursday
morning. Very windy conditions will accompany snowfall above 9000
feet, with blowing snow potentially reducing visibility throughout
the day Thursday.

The heaviest snowfall with this weather system is expected across
the northern and central Colorado mountains with amounts up to a
foot possible above 10000 feet. Travel could become difficult
across I-70 and many other highways crossing high mountain passes
Thursday morning through Thursday evening. There is still
significant spread in possible snow amounts, but stay tuned to
updates as the solution becomes clearer.
