...SNOWFALL IN THE NORTHERN COLORADO MOUNTAINS SLOW TO DECREASE...

.A strong jet stream and moisture will bring more snow and strong
winds to the northern mountains of Colorado through tonight. While
the heaviest snow has ended, strong winds will combine with the
snow and cold temperatures to create hazardous driving conditions
and dangerously cold wind chills. Poor visibility due to blowing
and drifting snow can be expected, especially on the high passes
including the approaches to the Eisenhower Tunnel and Vail Pass on
I-70. Snowfall should finally diminish in intensity Tuesday
morning.
