Big snow forecast for some Colorado mountain areas, but not Grand County

DENVER (AP) – The latest arctic blast is bringing frigid temperatures, wind and a lot of snow to Colorado.

The National Weather Service is forecasting up to 14 inches of new snow by noon Tuesday for Steamboat Springs and 10 to 20 inches by Tuesday night for Crested Butte, Aspen, Vail and Marble. U.S. Highway 6 over Loveland Pass was closed because of the snow on Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service had issued a winter weather advisory for much of Grand County but canceled it Tuesday morning. Agency forecasters on Tuesday morning were calling for up to two inches of additional snow in the Winter Park area by afternoon and gradually improving conditions throughout the day.

Snow caused the cancellation of 65 flights at Denver International Airport, where three inches of snow fell overnight. Some airlines are offering waivers to customers who rebook their flights.

The high in Denver was only expected to reach 8 degrees on Tuesday.
