Winter storm watch in effect Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night

12 to 18 inches possible in Colorado mountains

Daily staff report
Crews from the Colorado Department of Transportation are responsible for snowplowing along Interstate 70, U.S. Highway 6 and state highways.

Portions of Northwest, Southwest and West Central Colorado are under a winter storm watch from Tuesday evening through late Wednesday night.

Heavy snow is possible over many of the Western Colorado mountain ranges, with total snow accumulations of 12 to 18 inches with higher amounts up to 2 feet on the southwest facing slopes will be possible. Winds gusting as high as 55 mph in exposed areas will also be possible.

Travel could become very difficult at times. Heavy snow and blowing snow could significantly reduce visibility at times.

A winter storm watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
