Heavy Spring Snow In Forecast For Crested Butte

CRESTED BUTTE, Colo. (AP) – The calendar says it’s spring, but it’s still snowing in parts of the Colorado mountains.

The Colorado Avalanche Information Center reported 6 inches of snow in the past 24 hours in Gunnison County near Gothic on Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a “winter” storm warning for Wednesday through 6 p.m. Thursday for high-elevation areas in a spot south of Aspen, including Crested Butte and Marble. Forecasters say the storm could leave behind 5 to 10 inches of snow.

Meanwhile in Colorado Springs, forecasters are warning of potential flash flooding Wednesday and Thursday, especially in areas burned by the Waldo Canyon Fire last summer.
