DENVER — More snow is headed to Colorado's mountains after a Christmas Eve storm dropped up to 20 inches on snow in parts of the high country.

Widespread snow was expected Wednesday in western Colorado. The National Weather Service says the mountains will get between 6 and 14 inches of snow while between 2 and 6 inches will fall in the valleys.

A storm that moved across the state on Christmas Eve dropped 20 inches of snow on some parts of Grand Mesa. The Powderhorn ski resort, which sits at the edge of the mesa, reports getting 14 inches of new snow in the last 48 hours.

A storm that's slowed holiday travel in the nation's midsection isn't affecting travel so far at Denver International Airport, the nation's fifth busiest.

In Colorado Springs, the weather service forecasts a high temperature of 30 degrees and partly sunny skies Wednesday. Expect an overnight low of 13. The Springs has a 30 percent chance of snow Thursday with an expected high of 32.
