Aspen, Snowmass under winter storm watch from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night

The winter storm barreling across the West is expected to bring heavy snow to the upper Roaring Fork Valley from Tuesday afternoon through Wednesday night, according to the National Weather Service’s winter storm watch update on Monday night.

Heavy snow is possible over many of the Western Colorado mountain ranges, with total snow accumulations of 12 to 18 inches with higher amounts up to 2 feet on the southwest facing slopes will be possible. Winds gusting as high as 55 mph in exposed areas will also be possible.

Motorists should anticipate hazardous driving conditions, including blowing snow that could significantly reduce visibility at times.

The winter storm watch does not include Carbondale, Glenwood Springs and Rifle.
