More snow on the way

The National Weather Service has good news and bad news for the Colorado mountains. The good news is that another round of heavy snow is headed to western Colorado’s below-average snowpack.

The bad news is that travel through the region from this afternoon through Tuesday could be a challenge, with 10 inches to 2 feet of snow, driven by high winds.

Forecasters think metro Denver could see only rain or light snow tonight and early Tuesday, after a forecast high of 44 degrees and sunny skies this afternoon.

Most of the high country, however, will be under a winter storm warning from 3 p.m. today to midnight Tuesday, with the highest amounts expected in the southwestern San Juan Mountains and southwest-facing slopes.
