A winter weather advisory remained in effect until 2 p.m. Sunday for the San Juan Mountains, where a winter storm dumped about a foot of snow overnight.
Snow continued to fall Sunday morning on the mountain passes north of Durango on U.S. Highway 550.
Chain laws remain in effect for Molas, Coal Bank and Red Mountain passes, requiring vehicles to be equipped with chains or alternative traction devices.
Meteorologist Julie Malingowski of the National Weather Service in Grand Junction said the high country could see an additional 1 to 3 inches of snow Sunday afternoon before the storm moves out of the region.
“These accumulations were pretty spot on with what we were expecting,” she said. “The mountains might receive a few more inches of snow today.”
Malingowski said reports of snow in town range from 1 to 3 inches, and no additional accumulation is expected Sunday.
“There may be a few flurries in Durango this afternoon, but any accumulation is unlikely,” she said.
The beginning of the week is expected to be dry and cold, with temperatures warming up to the mid-40s around Wednesday.
The high country could see more snow Friday and Saturday as another weather system moves into the region, Malingowski said.
“There is the possibility for additional snow in the San Juans,” she said. “There is a slight possibility for additional precipitation in town, but this system is a further north, so we anticipate it will be in the higher terrain next weekend.”
