DENVER — A Pinpoint Weather Alert Day continues for the high country as the risk for an avalanche remains high.

An avalanche warning has been extended until 6 a.m. Monday. The Colorado Department of Transportation is planning avalanche mitigation projects through the day, so travel through the mountains is still not recommended.

Isolated snow showers will be possible across the mountains on Sunday with low accumulations expected.

Meanwhile, across the Front Range, expect clouds to gradually increase with highs in the upper 40s and lower 50s.

A late-day sprinkle or a few flurries can’t be ruled out, but no accumulation is expected in the Denver metro area.

Monday and Tuesday will stay mainly dry across the Front Range with highs building into the 50s and 60s. Expect increasing clouds with mountain snow continuing.

The next weather system moves onshore across California on Sunday. This will slowly march toward the Four Corners region, bringing scattered snow to the Front Range by Tuesday evening.

Heavy snow will be possible Wednesday and Thursday, as high temperatures drop into the 30s. As of Sunday morning, totals remain uncertain, but accumulation and blizzard-like conditions are likely across the Denver metro area and Front Range.

It will dry out by Friday and next weekend, but temperatures will take a while to return to normal.
