Quick shot of snow overnight in Denver metro area

DENVER -- There will be pockets of snow falling in the Colorado mountains on Monday night.

A few inches of accumulation is possible and roads will be slick, especially after sunset.

There is a winter weather advisory in place for the central and northern mountains and along the Interstate 70 corridor.

The wind will also be gusty, causing blowing and drifting and reducing visibility. The advisory lasts until early Tuesday morning.

In Denver, a period of freezing drizzle is possible on Monday night followed by some light snow. The snow will linger past midnight.

However, accumulation looks to be light with most places getting less than one-half of an inch.

There could be a few narrow spots that see more moderate bands with accumulation up to 2 inches.

The best places for those snow bands look to be south across Monument Hill to Colorado Springs and out on the eastern Plains along I-70 heading to Kansas.

The rest of the week looks dry and milder. However, another shot of cold and snow are in the forecast for the weekend.
