DENVER -- A band of high clouds will linger over Colorado, keeping temperatures mild in the Denver metro area on Sunday.

Denver will be near-record highs again Sunday afternoon, reaching the upper 60s under a mix of sun and clouds.

The record high on Sunday is 69 degrees, set in 2010, 1948 and 1885.

But changes are coming.

The next storm system will impact the mountains by Sunday night. Expect snow showers to start around dinner time, continuing overnight and through the start of Monday.

Snow showers will favor the mountains, with mainly dry conditions expected for the Denver metro area.

A few flurries can't be ruled out for the western suburbs Sunday night into Monday morning, but no accumulation is expected.

The biggest impacts for the Front Range will be the drastic drop in temperatures. Highs Monday will stay in the 30s, dropping into the teens on Tuesday morning.

The rest of the week will be dry but cool, with highs staying in the 40s and 50s. Overnight lows will stay above average, dropping into the 20s and 30s.
