The National Weather Service in Denver has issued a Winter Storm

* Timing... snow is expected to develop Sunday morning increasing
in intensity late Sunday afternoon and continue into Monday
night. The heaviest snow is expected to fall Sunday evening
through Monday morning.

* Snow accumulations... 12 to 24 inches will be possible with heavier
amounts on northwest facing slopes.

* Wind/visibility... mountain top wind gusts up to 70 mph will be
possible Sunday evening through Monday morning. This will cause
blowing and drifting snow. Visibilities over the mountains and
mountains passes may fall to near zero at times.

* Impacts... persons planning travel into the Colorado high country
should be prepared for difficult driving conditions... slow
travel... snow packed roads... and poor visibility in spots. Chain
Laws will likely be required for semi-trailers and buses to
travel over higher mountain passes. High Mountain passes could
become impassable due to the heavy snow and strong winds.

Precautionary/preparedness actions...

A Winter Storm Warning for heavy snow means severe winter weather
conditions are expected or occurring. Significant amounts of
snow are forecast that will make travel dangerous. Only travel in
an emergency. If you must travel... keep an extra flashlight...
food... and water in your vehicle in case of an emergency.
