Snow is flying in Grand County, with several inches already on the ground in Granby and Winter Park. The early season storm could bring up to 16 inches of new snow to parts of Colorado.

A winter storm warning is in effect through this evening and the National Weather Service says between 8 to 16 inches are possible by noon Tuesday in central Colorado, including Grand County below 9,000 feet. Between 5 and 9 inches are expected over the San Juan Mountains in southwestern Colorado.

Strong winds could reduce visibility to a mile or less because of blowing snow.

Loveland Ski Area became the first ski resort to open in the state on Sunday after getting 8 inches of new snow in recent days.

Trail Ridge Road and Loveland Pass are closed. Conditions on Berthoud Pass as of 10 a.m. Monday are reported to be slushy.
