Winter storm watch in effect Wednesday through Friday in Western Colorado
A winter storm watch for the mountains of Eastern Utah and Western Colorado is in effect Wednesday afternoon through Friday afternoon.
A winter storm watch means there is potential for significant snow, sleet or ice accumulations that may impact travel. Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
Travel is expected to be difficult at times, with blowing snow reducing visibility and gusty winds possibly bringing down branches and power lines.
Snow accumulations are expected to be about 10-20 inches, with amounts of over 2 feet possible in favored aspects.
