Snowstorm moves in from the north

DENVER (AP) - Another snowstorm is bringing strong winds and frigid temperatures to parts of Colorado. The National Weather Service said gusts up to 40 mph could create blizzard conditions on the plains southeast of Denver and into northern El Paso County into Wednesday. Forecasters say travel could become impossible in parts of Douglas, Elbert and Lincoln counties, including along Interstate 70. Wind chill readings could drop to near 10 degrees.

Independence Pass between Aspen and Leadville closed Tuesday because of an expected 6 to 9 inches there. In Denver, officials planned to distribute motel vouchers if homeless shelters filled up. Snow is already falling south of Denver.
