DENVER —  This storm is bringing snow, heavy at times, in the mountains and foothills... along with wind, snow and scattered thunderstorms to the Front Range and plains. 

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Denver metro-area, the majority of our mountains, Front Range foothills and eastern plains through 6 a.m. Monday.

In terms of how much accumulation we can expect... the mountains and foothills are looking at around 5-10 inches at higher elevations through the night. The I-25 corridor from Denver to Fort Collins are expecting around 1-4 inches of snow. The Palmer Divide and much of Elbert county can expect anywhere from 3-6 inches.

If you or someone you know are traveling across Colorado, be prepared for slick roads and poor visibility at times through Monday morning. Winds will remain strong. Lows drop to around 30 degrees in Denver. Teens and 20s in the mountains overnight. 

A First Alert Action Day will be issued for the Front Range through Monday Morning. 

It looks like the snow will taper off Monday morning, as this system moves east. Highs on Monday will be in the mid to upper 40s with partly cloudy skies and the chance for a few scattered late-day showers.

A warm-up, with highs in the mid-50s, for Tuesday. More sunshine, with mid-60s Wednesday and around 70 degree weather on Thursday. 

Looking ahead- we could still use more snow... In the mountains, the snow-pack is roughly at 70 percent of normal for the season, with the southern mountain areas in the worst shape. The next chance for more moisture looks to be by the end of the week in the high country. Stay tuned!
