DENVER —  A storm is moving into Colorado. Mostly cloudy and dry in Denver for the first half of Monday, then expect rain turning to snow tonight. 

A Dense Fog Advisory is in effect until 9am Monday morning for Denver and the surrounding areas. This includes Denver, Parker, Castle Rock, Bennett, Brighton, Thornton, Ft. Collins, Limon, Akron, and Burlington. Be very careful on your morning commute, as the visibility may be lower than a 1/4 of a mile in spots. 

For Monday afternoon, cooler air and rain will move into the Front Range. Highs will be in the low to mid-50s in Denver. We have the chance for rain turning to snow across the plains Monday night into Tuesday morning.

Winds will be gusty as this storm rolls through. As of now, it looks like snow totals won't amount to much in Denver. 1-3 inches in the metro. Near the foothills and over the Palmer Divide though, we could see around 3-6 inches of snow accumulate. 

Tuesday, things dry out with temperatures in the mid-40s under a partly cloudy sky. Temperatures will gradually climb through the week. We will have another chance for rain/snow on Thursday. 

Looking ahead- we could still use more snow... In the mountains, the snow-pack is still roughly at 70 percent of normal for the season, with the southern mountain areas in the worst shape.This week should help a bit! Stay tuned.
