DENVER -- The strong snowstorm that spent the weekend in the region is slow to completely leave. A few snow showers fell early Tuesday, especially south and east of Denver.  Meanwhile, rain showers caused wet roads near downtown Denver early Tuesday morning.

Skies since then have dried over the city with sun making a return.  However, scattered mountain snow and rain in the northeastern Plains continue.

There is a 30 percent chance the rain over the Plains could rotate into the city during the evening rush hour, with rain/snow continuing across the entire Front Range.  Highs will reach the upper 40s and low 50s around throughout the metro area.

The storm's last hurrah will bring the chance of rain back into the metro area on Wednesday evening.  As sunset approaches temperatures south of the city, mainly around the Palmer Divide, could get cold enough to support a few wet snow flakes.  Afternoon highs will reach the mid-50s.

It finally turns sunny, dry and much warmer later in the week, with  a high of 65 on Thursday and a high of 75 on Friday.

Scattered storms slip back into the forecast late on Saturday with better rain chances on Sunday and Monday.
