VAIL, Colorado “-Spring-like weather should come to an end sometime this week as a ‘vigorous’ storm brings snow and rain to Colorado’s Vail Valley, the National Weather Service says.

The Weather Service forecast for Sunday a high of 45 to 55, a chance of rain and snow showers in the afternoon and snow after midnight. Two to four inches could fall as low as 8,000 feet. Vail is about 8,150 feet above sea level.
