Snow keeps falling in Aspen

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

ASPEN ” Aspen could pick up another 4 to 8 inches of snow Wednesday as yet another winter storm moves through western Colorado.

The National Weather Service dropped the snow and blowing snow advisory it had issued for the mountains surrounding Aspen in favor of a full-fledged winter storm warning, which is in effect until Thursday at 6 a.m.

Snow has fallen much of the day in Aspen and Snowmass; it will be moderate to heavy at times before diminishing some time Wednesday night, according to the weather service.

The forecast for Thursday calls for mostly cloudy skies and a 20 percent chance of snow, with highs of 15 to 25 and morning wind-chill readings of 12 to 22 below zero. Snow is likely Thursday night, with accummulations of 1 to 3 inches, according to the weather service.

There is a 40 percent chance of snow on Friday, with highs in the 20s and wind-chill readings of 3 to 13 below in the morning.

While Aspen, Basalt and Carbondale schools all held classes on Wednesday as usual, poor road conditions closed schools in Glenwood Springs.

Bad weather has also forced the cancellation of all after-school activities in the Garfield Re-2 district, including Rifle, Silt and New Castle, including the boys’ basketball matchup between Rifle and Glenwood Springs. The game was to be played Wednesday evening in Rifle.
