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.
