Heavier snow may hit Vail
VAIL, Colorado – After light snow earlier this week, more than a foot of snow could fall in Vail by Saturday, the National Weather Service says.
Snow is likely through Sunday. Up to six inches could be on the ground by tonight. Another two to four inches could fall during the day Friday, with another few inches falling Friday night.
Winds could gust as high as 50 mph Friday, creating hazardous travel conditions in the mountains, the Weather Service says. As with other recent storms, the mountains of southwestern Colorado will get the heaviest snow with blizzard conditions and up to three feet of snow expected.
Snow remains likely Saturday and Sunday, the Weather Service says. Day-time highs will remain in the 30s through Saturday but drop into the 20s on Sunday.
The snow should taper off Monday but another snow storm could move into the region Tuesday night and Wednesday.

Are we seeing more bears because there are more bears on the valley floor, or because we’re all spending more time at home? It could be a bit of both.
