Snow Continues to Fall in High Country

Snow is expected to keep falling in parts of western Colorado. Although we're not expecting to see much snow in our area, the high country could see significant amounts throughout Friday.

Up to 12 inches are possible at higher elevations, including Crested Butte, through Friday evening. A few inches of snow are also expected in Aspen and Vail.

Durango got its first snowstorm of the season Thursday evening. Rain unexpectedly turned into wet, heavy snow and knocked out power to about 3,000 homes and businesses. It also caused several accidents on U.S. Highway 550, with some cars stuck in ditches.

The Durango Herald reports about 8 inches of snow fell in Silverton while Red Mountain Pass got about 12 inches.

Along the Front Range, strong winds also knocked out power to homes in and around Denver and Boulder.
