The weather is already changing across Colorado as another storm system moves into the region. This next storm holds the promise of another 6-12 inches of snow for the mountains, and a few inches for the Front Range as well.Over the weekend, the mountains received a decent amount of snow in some locations such as Wolf Creek, which reported a 48-hour total of 14 inches. Arapahoe Basin, Copper Mountain and Loveland also reported two to three inches of new snow as of Sunday morning. Any additional lingering flurries today will be light with little accumulation expected.The next opportunity for snow will be Monday and Tuesday, with another storm winding across the state. Early indication shows this storm will have a lesser impact on the Front Range compared to the eastern plains; the far eastern counties along the Nebraska and Kansas borders are already under a Winter Storm Watch. Snow totals should be light in the metro area, but remember, it only takes a little snow to make a messy commute. Tuesday morning could offer some slow travel along the Front Range. Stay tuned for updates on this one.The mountains will pick up heavier snows, 6 to 12 inches possible through early Tuesday. The far eastern plains will also see some heavier snow late Monday night through Tuesday. Four to eight inches will be possible near the Kansas Border.If you're ready for some warmer temperatures, a slight thaw does appear in the 7-Day Planner. Daytime readings will climb back to near 60-degrees by the tail end of the work week.
