DENVER (AP) – Winter weather, hazardous driving and avalanche warnings are covering Colorado.

The National Weather Service said Tuesday up to two feet of snow is expected in the mountains over the next two days. Several inches of snow along the Front Range and Eastern Plains is making driving hazardous.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says avalanche conditions could become very dangerous on the Western Slope.

The Colorado Department of Transportation has closed Loveland Pass and Colorado Highway 65 near Grand Mesa because of heavy snow.

The La Plata Electric Association said heavy, wet snow that downed some power lines led to outages for hundreds of people in southwest Colorado over the weekend, but power was fully restored Monday afternoon.
