A strong winter storm will move across the Rockies Sunday and early Monday bringing heavy snow and strong winds to the mountains of western Colorado. Snowfall amounts will range from 1 to 2 feet from Vail Pass north the mountains near Steamboat Springs with a few areas picking up close to 3 feet by late Monday. For the mountains south of Vail Pass, snowfall accumulations will vary from 6 to 16 inches...with the heaviest amounts expected to fall from the Grand Mesa to near Crested Butte. The high valleys, including Craig, Eagle, Avon and Gunnison will also receive some snow...with accumulations from 2 to 6 inches. Strong winds gusting to 50 mph will create widespread blowing and drifting snow and whiteout conditions at times, especially over the higher passes. This storm will move out by Monday evening with drier conditions moving in for the remainder of the week.   (Please visit http://weather.gov/gjt for more information.)
