DENVER -- Rain and snow moved into Colorado on Monday and it will hang around the Front Range for the next few days.

Highs will only reach the upper 40s through Tuesday.

The mountains above 9,000 are under a winter weather advisory until noon Tuesday where 4-8 inches of snow could fall. The foothills will see a switch to a snow/mix on Monday night and might come away with one-half inch of slushy accumulation.

Some snow will mix with rain Monday night on the Palmer Divide and in the southern suburbs of Denver, but no accumulation is expected.

Scattered showers are likely Tuesday, but after that, more seasonable weather returns. Afternoon storms are in the forecast through Sunday, but temperatures will improve to the 70s by the end of the week and possibly 80 by the weekend.
