— A winter storm warning remains in effect until 6 p.m. today for Steamboat Springs and the surrounding areas, with the National Weather Service forecasting total accumulations of between 8 and 16 inches by the end of the day.

However, strong winds — gusts up to 35 mph are predicted — will create areas of blowing and drifting snow. Driving conditions will be hazardous today throughout Routt County and particularly over high mountain passes like Rabbit Ears Pass.

As of 8:30 a.m. today, U.S. Highway 40 over Rabbit Ears Pass remained open, but motorists should expect to encounter blowing snow, poor visibility and slick roads, according to the Colorado Department of Transportation.

Today’s high temperature is forecast at 22 degrees, with an overnight low tonight of 2 degrees. Wednesday's high will only get to 12 degrees, with an overnight low of minus 6 degrees.

A chance of snow persists through Wednesday before giving ways to cloudy skies Thursday.

A chance of snow returns to the forecast at the end of the week.
