Snow returns to forecast

Sky-Hi News Staff Report

Yesterday’s rain and snow in Grand County was just a knock on the door, according to the National Weather Service. Weather forecasters are keeping an eye on a storm that could bring up to two feet of snow to the north-central Colorado mountains this week.

The National Weather Service says the storm is expected to arrive Tuesday evening in Colorado and move across the state Wednesday. There’s a winter storm watch Tuesday evening through Wednesday afternoon from an area covering Rocky Mountain National Park, Georgetown, Fairplay and Castle Rock.

If temperatures dip low enough, areas in Colorado near the Wyoming border could get more than two feet of snow.

Snow should continue Wednesday, when the high will only reach 40. There is a chance of snow each day for the rest of the work week, the National Weather Service says.
