DENVER — Afternoon highs reached the 50s and 60s for the Denver metro on Sunday...however, rain arrives by the evening hours and a quick-moving system drops a rain-snow mix on Monday.

Colorado’s high country is expected to see a couple of rounds of snow with totals ranging from 4-8 inches in some areas. High temps in the mountains on Sunday are expected to range in the 30s and 40s.

Snow is expected to continue in Colorado’s northern and central mountains through Monday, according to Donaldson.

Snow totals through Tuesday morning show between 4-8 inches possible across portions of the northwest part of the state and 6 to 10 inches along the southwest mountains.

“2 to 4 inches snow totals into the foothills west of Denver and then down toward the south past Castle Rock, otherwise a rain-snow mix for most of metro Denver- creating wet roads,” said Donaldson. Slushy conditions expected in the foothills and higher elevations.\

Snow will be picking up in intensity Sunday night into Monday evening in the mountains.

“Several inches of snow with travel impacts will be possible across the Front Range Mountains and foothills Monday afternoon and evening,” said the NWS.

The storm system quickly moves out leaving behind a stretch of beautiful days this coming week on Denver’s 7-day forecast, including afternoon highs warming into the 70s.

“Thursday and Friday should be the warmest days so far this year on the plains with max temperatures expected to climb into the lower to upper 70s,” added the NWS.

After Monday’s high of 45 degrees and rain-snow mix in Denver, a weather pattern will bring clearing skies and sunshine warming Tuesday’s afternoon high into the low 50s.

By Wednesday, 60s arrive in Denver before Thursday and Friday afternoon high temperatures soar into the 70s.

Denver’s next chance of rain arrives in time for next weekend.

March in Denver is historically the snowiest month, but as we roll into the final day of the month, the metro's official snow gauge shows we lagged behind normal totals for the month by around 2 inches.

The reporting station at Denver International Airport recorded 9.2 inches of snow for the month of March compared to a monthly normal of around 11.5 inches.

Denver's cumulative snowfall totals for this winter season stand at 38.3 inches, which is around 8 inches behind the normal 46.4 inches expected by the end of March.
