Another fast moving storm will impact Western Colorado Monday night into Tuesday.

The second of two storm systems will bring widespread precipitation to much of eastern Utah and Western Colorado Monday afternoon into Tuesday. All mountains should see snow with a stronger push of colder air.

The timing of this storm will bring snow in late Monday afternoon, continuing through Tuesday morning with the heaviest snowfall expected Monday night.

So how much snow will we see? Accumulations could be anywhere from 4 to 8 inches according to the national weather service with locally higher amounts. There will also be wind associated with the storm at 10 to 15 MPH.

Visibility could drop below one mile during the peak of the storm, during periods of heavier snowfall.

This storm will impact area roadways, too. Roads will be snow covered and slippery. Travel will likely be impacted on Highway 40 approaching rabbit ears pass, I-70 over Vail pass, Highway 133 over McClure Pass and Highway 82 around Aspen.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow and or blowing snow will cause travel difficulties. Be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibility. Use caution while driving.
