DENVER (CBS4) – A moisture packed spring-like storms is soaking Colorado with wet snow, rain and even thunderstorms.
This system is mixing in with cold air and will bring significant snowfall to many mountain locations and the first snow for Denver and parts of the eastern plains in several weeks!
The Denver metro area and most of the northern Front Range is now under a Winter Weather Advisory through 6am Monday morning.
In the mountains we expect an average of 4-8″ of snow with lighter amounts in the valleys and some higher pockets on a few of the highest peaks. There will be a lot of wind which could cause some occasional travel problems.
The snow should be over by Monday morning’s commute. However, there may be icy to slushy roads around the metro area for your early drive. Should start a warming trend just in time for the first day of spring on Tuesday.
