DENVER -- Welcome back, winter.
Snow returned to Colorado Sunday, with 1 to 4 inches expected in the Denver metropolitan area and more than a foot in parts of the high country.
Mountain storms had already closed portions of Interstate 70 at Vail Pass, Georgetown and elsewhere as of 5 p.m. The roads reopened shortly after 6 p.m.

Due to the duration of this storm and the amount of snow expected, the Winter Storm Watch issued for the urban corridor and mountains has been upgraded to a Winter Weather Advisory for Denver, Boulder, Fort Collins and Parker; and a Winter Storm Warning for the mountains, Palmer Divide and cities including: Castle Pines, Castle Rock, Genesee, Evergreen, Nederland, and Estes Park.
The Monday morning commute was expected to be extremely slick due to plunging temperatures overnight. Light snow may linger into Monday morning's commute in some parts of the state. By Monday afternoon, the sun should emerge, melting some snow.
But don't break out the shorts just yet -- another storm arrives Wednesday night into Thursday, bringing another chance of snow.
