Get ready to drop into the weekend with more fresh powder on the way to Colorado.

Snow showers will continue moving across parts of the high country from Friday through Saturday, with 2 to 5 inches of new snow expected in the northern and central mountains. Be prepared for hazardous mountain travel, especially along the I-70 Corridor through Summit County.

According to a report from OpenSnow meteorologist Joel Gratz, the next chance for snow following this weekend will hit parts of the state in three waves from Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, with another round of powder expected around February 3-4.

Motorists traveling to the mountains through Saturday are advised to use caution and take it slow. Stock your vehicle with extra food and water, a flashlight, shovel, and blankets, and warm layers in case of an emergency. In any case, it’s best to be prepared for the unexpected.
