Vail, Colorado communities brace for spring snow

National Weather Service/Vail Daily

DENVER – Colorado’s central mountains – including Vail – along with the foothills west of Denver and the northeast part of the state could feel the brunt of a spring storm expected to unleash rain and heavy snow.

Rain is expected to turn to snow, with the foothills and parts of the mountains getting between 1 and 2 feet. Areas south of Denver, including Douglas and Jefferson counties, might see just a couple of inches. Vail is forecast to get a few inches tonight and Wednesday.

The Colorado Department of Transportation is calling in crews for a snow shift in the Denver area around 10 p.m. Tuesday.

Crews are already in position the mountains west of Boulder, along Interstate 70 in the mountains west of Denver and in the Colorado Springs area.

The Colorado Rockies’ game against the Philadelphia Phillies at Coors Field in Denver was rained out Tuesday night.

There is a chance of snow in Vail each day through Saturday.
