DENVER --  A return to winter weather is underway in Colorado, with snow in the mountains and rain on the Plains.

Some spots in the central mountains could see more than a foot of fresh powder.

In Denver, light snow is expected into Tuesday morning. There appears to be a hard line in accumulation from east to west.

Areas to the east of the city and onto the eastern Plains might get little to no snow. Farther west, the totals climb quickly to 2 to 3 inches, and then jump to better than 6 inches in the foothills.

Temperatures will dip into the low 20s overnight, causing roads to turn slick to slushy. The system quickly departs Tuesday morning with snow ending from north to south.

As the sunshine returns, it will be a chilly and breezy day with highs only in the mid- to upper 30s

The last time it snowed in Denver was the Groundhog Day storm on Feb. 1-2 when nearly a foot of snow fell at Denver International Airport.
