Pinpoint Weather Alert Day: Cold temperatures, light snow and slick roads Saturday

Heavy overnight snow showers should clear by Monday commute

DENVER -- Heavy rain, mixed and snow showers moved into the Front Range on Sunday night. Rain showers will change over to snow quickly as temperatures continue to drop.

The main impacts with the storm storm will be accumulating snow and slick roads. Wind will also be an impact with gusts up to 45 mph causing blowing snow and reduced visibility.

Snow showers will continue on the Front Range, Plains and mountains overnight through early Monday and will be heavy at times.

Most of the snow showers will push east of the Front Range and become lighter by the Monday morning commute.

Roads will be slick Monday morning.

The Interstate 25 corridor and eastern Plains will dry out midday Monday with some sunshine returning.

A second push of moisture will bring another round of isolated snow showers to the Front Range on Monday evening.

They won't be as strong or widespread as Sunday night's snow. Monday's highs will be in the mid-40s.

Accumulations will vary greatly over short distances. The Denver metro area has a chance to see 1-4 inches of snow with the Palmer Divide and south side stacking up 3-6 inches.

The mountains will see 4-10 inches.

Multiple winter weather advisories are in place in the higher elevations and along the Palmer Divide. Travel conditions will be tough Sunday night and Monday with low visibility and slick roads.

Tuesday will be dry with highs climbing back to the 50s.

The rest of the week will be warm and dry with highs in the 60s for Wednesday and the 70s by Thursday.

Friday will have a 10 percent chance for isolated rain showers.
