DENVER -- Snow from a quick-moving system moved out of the Denver metro area Tuesday morning after dropping about an inch of snow in downtown Denver.

Roads were beginning to dry out with just a few icy spots on the side streets, especially west of Interstate 25. Conditions were improving and sunshine will arrive to quickly dry things out.

While the metro area largely escaped a big snow event, the same couldn't be said for the foothills west of the city, where 7 to 12 inches have fallen.

While the National Weather Service reported 0.9 of an inch fell five miles northeast of Denver, 10.7 inches had fallen as of 6:30 a.m. in Bergen Park and 11 inches were recorded in Evergreen.

It will be a cool day, with temperatures only reaching the upper 30s as clouds begin to move out.

Another string of warm days is on the horizon, with sunshine expected through the end of the week. Highs will climb into the lower 50s on Wednesday and Thursday, the mid-50s on Friday with the lower 60s expected by Saturday.
