Meanwhile, a weather system will bring snow and strong winds to the mountains through Monday evening. The heaviest snow will be north of the Interstate 70 corridor. Strong winds will produce blowing snow and very poor visibilities at times over the higher mountain passes.
Snow with storm totals snow accumulations of 4 to 10 inches are expected along with winds gusting as high as 80 mph.
Winter Weather Advisories are in place meaning that periods of snow will cause difficult travel conditions. Drivers should expect snow-covered roads and limited visibility.
