GEORGETOWN, Colo. (CBS4) – Snowy conditions are expected in Colorado’s high country on Monday, and the day started out with strong winds there that caused some problems.

A winter weather advisory is in effect in the mountains until Tuesday morning.

The strong winds were likely a factor in the crash of a truck on Interstate 70 near Georgetown sometime before 6:30 a.m. The semi jackknifed in the westbound lanes, and that led to an extended highway closure.
