Grand County to see snow as storm moves into Colorado

Sky-Hi News staff report

As a winter storm moves into northeast and north central Colorado, Grand County will see the edge of the weather and some light accumulation Saturday.

The worst of the storm will be centered in northeastern Colorado, but the National Weather Service has Grand on a hazardous weather outlook.

Increasing northerly winds will increase this morning and continue through the evening up to 45 mph, according to NWS. The county can expect up to 2 inches of snow in some areas.

Winter Park Resort started Saturday with 2 inches of fresh snow and could see another 2-4 inches throughout the day, according to meteorologist Joel Gratz. All but one of Winter Park’s lifts are open and 87% of trails are now available.

Conditions will improve from west to east tonight, but travel could still be hampered with blowing snow and poor visibility.

Strong winds are possible across the high mountains Sunday, likely disrupting holiday travel, and continuing through Monday. The next chance for snow is New Year’s Day when 2-6 inches of snow could fall on the high mountains.
