The National Weather Service says as much as 4-8 inches could fall in elevations above 9,000 feet in the mountains of Montana and Wyoming.

Some areas have been placed under a Winter Weather Advisory.

Colorado is on the extreme southern edge of this weather system and will be windy as it passes by.

Some colder air will filter into northern and northeast Colorado by Tuesday with highs dropping 20-30 degrees from Monday.
