Light snow will continue across west facing slopes in the
mountains north of Interstate 70. Tonight, snow will increase
across the area with periods of moderate snow in the mountains.
The Plains will also see snow later this evening and into
Tuesday, with 1 to 4 inches possible overnight. The mountains
could see an additional 4-6 inches tonight, including the
Interstate 70 corridor. In addition to the snow, areas of freezing
drizzle will be possible with the best chance being over the
eastern plains and south of I-70. With cold road surfaces
expected, there is a good chance of slick roads for the Tuesday
morning commute.

Light snow and areas of freezing drizzle are likely across much
of the forecast area Tuesday into Tuesday evening. Some light snow
will linger over the high mountains all of Tuesday night.
Snowfall accumulations are not expected to be significant with

next weekend, with just a few light snow showers over the high
mountains Friday afternoon through Saturday. Temperatures will be
below seasonal normals on Tuesday, then warm up and stay right
near normal readings Wednesday through Sunday.
