DENVER (CBS4) – Monday started with a mix of rain and snow along most of the Front Range thanks a quick moving upper-level storm system. The storm will be far to the southeast of Colorado by Monday evening and skies will quickly clear.
On Tuesday we’ll start a 3 day stretch of sunny, breezy, and much warmer weather. Wednesday should be the warmest day of the week when some neighborhoods in the metro area could conceivably reach 80°.
About 18 ski areas remain open in Colorado and almost all of them have seen snow in recent days. Loveland Ski Area seems to have received the most with almost 2 feet since Saturday.
After dry weather statewide on Tuesday, Wednesday, and most of Thursday, snow will return to the mountains by Thursday night and the Denver area has a chance for flurries Friday and Friday night as much colder weather returns.
