Weather - Winter Storm Alert

Snow Alert

A couple of winter storms will bring a period of cold weather with off and on snow across southern Colorado, starting Sunday and continuing through Wednesday.  The heaviest rounds of snow will be Sunday night through Monday morning with another round Tuesday afternoon into Wednesday.  This will be a drier and fluffier snow than the previous event, but with the arrival of colder temperatures ahead of the snow, there won't be as much melting which will allow for more efficient snow accumulations, even across the lower elevations. 

A winter storm watch has been posted for the central and southeast mountains as well as portions of the southern I-25 corridor for the first round. Impacts from the second round of snow may be more widespread across southern Colorado depending on the eventual storm track.

**UPDATE** As of 10:00 a.m., 10/04/2019, all Fire Restrictions in the County of Rio Grande have been lifted.
