A strong Pacific storm system will bring snow, blowing snow, and much colder temperatures to the high country tonight. Snowfall in the mountains will be heavy at times through this evening, and then gradually taper off overnight.  Hazardous and slow travel conditions can be expected across the high country, including the I-70 Corridor from Georgetown through Summit County and Vail Pass. Total snowfall amounts will range from 7 to 15 inches across the higher mountains, with a significant portion of that falling this evening.

On the plains, scattered rain and snow showers will continue this evening, along with gusty winds to around 40 mph. Snowfall accumulations across the lower elevations should be under an inch and confined to locations near the foothills, Palmer Divide, and Wyoming border.
