KUSA - Snow will be ending Tuesday afternoon in the High Country as winds relax a little across the foothills and through the Denver metro area, according to the Colorado weather forecast.

Gusty wind moved over the Front Range this morning as a few bands of snow moved through, but the wind has now shifted more over the eastern plains.

A HIGH WIND WARNING remains in effect until 7 p.m. for locations near Yuma, Wray and Burlington. Gusts to 60 mph will be possible on the far eastern plains.

Rabbits Ears Pass and Loveland Pass are among the roads closed because of the extreme conditions. Berthoud Pass is back open after workers cleaned up a triggered avalanche that was between 100 and 150 feet wide and over 20 feet deep.

Ski resorts in our mountain areas have enjoyed several days of powder. A much drier weather pattern will set up for the rest of the week and the weekend.

A few mountain resorts have seen a foot or more of snow accumulation in just the last 48 hours.
