Snowed again?

Brent Gardner-Smith

Can you handle more snow? Sure you can. Last night’s weather may have brought in up to 3 inches with overnight lows from 16 to 27 degrees.

The snow was also supposed to come in along with winds from the southwest at a clip of between 35 and 45 mph.

Today should be relatively cold and windy with snow showers throughout the day. Highs are to be in the mid-20s to lower 40s with west winds from 25 to 35 mph.

Tonight there is a 50 percent chance of snow showers with lows from 7 to 16 degrees, which is downright chilly.

Friday should bring mostly cloudy conditions with a slight chance of snow and temps in the 20s and 30s. Saturday and Sunday should be mostly cloudy and breezy with temps in the low 30s.

And here’s a look at how other resorts around Colorado are doing this week:
