Winter Storm Threat Increasing Next Week

The potential for a significant winter storm next week is increasing across the Western Slope. A series of potent disturbances will result in a prolonged winter storm beginning on Monday and lasting through Wednesday night or Thursday. Potential impacts include hazardous travel from slick, snow-covered roads, blowing snow and low visibility. The mountains of western Colorado stand to face the greatest impacts, but adjacent valleys will also be at risk. Stay tuned to the forecast through the weekend and consider making alternate travel plans for next week.
