Storm brings snow to mountains, wind to Denver metro area

DENVER --  A cold front delivered snow to the mountains, and wind and colder temperatures to the Denver metro area on Monday morning.

Snow will continue in the central and northern mountains on Monday before ending this afternoon and into tonight.

There will be 1-4 inches of accumulation at the ski areas along with plus 70 mph gusts above treeline. It will stay mostly dry in the southern mountains.

It will be drier but windy in Denver, Boulder and Fort Collins on Monday with 20-45 mph gusts. After highs in the 60s the past three days, it will only reach the 30s on Monday.

Sunshine returns on Tuesday with highs in the low 40s as winds relax.

Two more cold fronts are lined up for Colorado. The first hits on Wednesday and the second hits on Thursday afternoon.

Both fronts look minor but could deliver some very light mountain snow and gusty winds.  They will lock in colder highs in the 30s and 40s this week.

The weekend is looking dry, sunny and warmer with highs in the 50s to near 60 degrees.
