DENVER (AP) – Chilly temperatures remain after a snowstorm brought sub-freezing temperatures and several bad traffic accidents over the weekend.

High winds on the Western Slope were causing poor visibility from blowing snow on Sunday and patches of snow in the northern mountains. Sun and clouds are expected to cover the Eastern Plains.

An off-duty Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department sergeant was killed after he was struck by a passing car while directing traffic at the scene of a multi-car crash on U.S. 285 north of Conifer on Saturday. Authorities say it was snowing at the time of the accident and the road was covered with snow.
