Winter storm could bring more than 2 feet of snow to Summit County by Sunday

Summit Daily staff report

The National Weather Service in Boulder is forecasting a major winter storm that will blanket areas of Colorado with multiple feet of snow by Sunday.

A winter storm warning is currently in effect for Summit County, forecasting possible snow accumulations between 15 to 30 inches with isolated amounts up to 40 inches by late Saturday night. Winds gusting up to 45 mph at times will produce areas of blowing snow and poor visibilities.

The high today is 37 degrees with an overnight low of 23 degrees.

The latest road conditions for Colorado can be obtained by calling 511 or visiting meteorologist Joel Gratz said for the best powder on the ski slopes, “snow conditions will get deeper and softer with time, so Saturday should be soft and maybe deep by midday or afternoon, and Sunday morning should be the softest and deepest. Powder is possible on Monday as well though I have low confidence.”
