The National Weather Service forecasts parts of Grand County could see four to six inches of fresh snow starting Monday night through Tuesday.

A storm is predicted to develop around 10 p.m. Monday with the heaviest snow hitting early morning Tuesday through around 2 p.m. and flakes lingering until 6 p.m., according to the NWS.

Travel will likely see the most impacts Tuesday morning due to slick, snow covered roads.

Expected snow totals are one to two inches in the Granby area, three to four inches around Winter Park and less than an inch in Kremmling, though there is a chance for higher snowfall.
