DENVER (AP) — Forecasters say a strong storm that is expected to dump more than 2 feet of snow in parts of Colorado’s mountains on Thursday and Friday will increase the danger of avalanches.
The Colorado Avalanche Information Center says conditions could quickly become dangerous in the Northern Mountains, as well as in the Sawatch and the Sangre de Cristo mountains.
The Denver Post reports a winter storm warning has been issued for Jackson, Larimer, Grand, Boulder, Gilpin, Clear Creek, Summit, Park and Douglas counties from Thursday evening through late Friday.
The National Weather Service says high altitude areas could see between 1 and 2 feet of snow, and some areas could even get up to 3 feet.
