Gone But Not Forgotten - A Bit of Winter is Back

CDOT reminds those traveling to the high country this week
that winter driving conditions may exist - don’t get caught unprepared

STATEWIDE – Colorado Department of Transportation (CDOT) maintenance personnel are scheduled to go on snow shifts tonight, as a spring storm is on the way.

According to the outlook from Colorado Avalanche Information Center forecasters, the temperatures are expected to drop rapidly after midnight tonight as a cold front moves eastward across our mountains. Snowfall into Wednesday morning should be modest, but could intensify and also be accompanied by very strong southwesterly winds.


Weather models are still developing but as of now, much of the snow is expected in the northern Front Range east of the Continental Divide, with some reaching over to Berthoud, Loveland and Vail passes.

Statewide, CDOT maintenance crews and equipment are prepared: though summer highway activities have been underway in most areas, plows, products and manpower are on the ready.

"Typically these late spring storms are fast-moving and can ice quickly, catching motorists unprepared," CDOT Highway Maintenance Director Kyle Lester said. "We're reminding travelers to check the conditions before heading out, slow down and drive for the conditions."
