DENVER — Dry and quiet conditions cover Colorado and will continue to do so through early Tuesday. Lows overnight will range from 10 to 20 below in the high mountain valleys, to teens and low 20s on the plains.
Tuesday will be mostly sunny for Denver and the eastern plains, with afternoon temperatures in the upper 40s to low 50s. The mountains will see some increasing clouds Tuesday with light to moderate snow developing Tuesday night into Wednesday morning. Most ski areas will receive 3 to 6 inches of snow from this next storm system.
Some light rain showers or flurries will be possible across eastern Colorado on Wednesday with highs in the mid-to upper 40s under a mostly cloudy sky.
Thursday will be mild and dry ahead of the next storm system. Highs will be in the 50s on the plains with 30s in the mountains.
A stronger storm will bring more snow to the high country and plains Thursday night and Friday. This storm should bring 5 to 10 inches of snow to the mountains and perhaps an inch or two to the plains. It will not be as big a snow maker for the Denver area as the one that hit late last week.
The weekend will be cool, but relatively quiet with just a few snow showers possible in the mountains.
