DENVER (CBS4) – Dense fog will be a problem in many areas through the morning commute on Monday. Clouds will lift by late morning leaving higher clouds for the remainder of the day.
Denver and the I-25 corridor as well as the Eastern Plains will stay dry through at least early Monday evening. Meanwhile the mountains may see a few light snow showers during the day on Monday but no accumulation is expected.
Then intensifying snowfall will develop in the high country Monday evening and eventually precipitation will reach the metro area by midnight Monday night. Snow will continue at times through the morning commute on Tuesday which is expected to be slow and slick.
Total snow accumulation will vary but on average we’ll see 1-4 inches in the metro area by mid morning on Tuesday. The highest amounts will be west of I-25 and especially near the base of the foothills. The foothills themselves should see 3-6 inches while Northern Colorado including Fort Collins, Loveland, and Greeley should be in the 2-5 inch range. The mountains (above 9,000 feet) will see 4-8 inches.
The snow will end statewide Tuesday night allowing for sunny skies to return on Wednesday. And after the snow end, we should stay dry through at least the upcoming weekend.
