DENVER (AP) — Parts of Colorado are getting a white Christmas — and then some.
A snowstorm moving in this evening along the central Rockies is expected to leave a hefty accumulation by tomorrow morning. The Denver area is expecting eight to 12 inches.
The Colorado Department of Transportation alerted employees that they may have to cut Christmas celebrations short to help clear highways.
Meanwhile, mountain resorts were rejoicing at the fresh powder that came during the busy tourist time. But officials reminded backcountry skiers and hikers to be aware of avalanche danger.
