Another storm has been affecting the mountains. This storm is expected to bring around 8 to 16 inches of snow to the high country through tomorrow morning, but once again will miss Denver and the eastern plains.

The Colorado Department of Transportation later closed the highway between Kremmling and Steamboat Springs due to low visibility.

We have only seen 3/10 of an inch of snow officially in Denver. By the end of December, we are typically looking at around 20 inches of snow.

This week, a colder and snowier pattern returns. Monday, expect snow showers for the mountains and mostly cloudy skies over the plains- with a few flakes possible in Denver by the evening. Highs tomorrow will be in the 40s.

We should finally see some flakes across the Front Range and northeast plains starting late Tuesday through Wednesday. While not a major storm, there will at least be colder temperatures and some accumulating snow.

As we round out the year, there is a chance for snow in Denver Friday night into early Saturday. We could see a few inches before all is said and done. Highs in the 40s for Friday with snow by the evening- then dropping into the 20s and 30s for highs on New Year's Day with chances for AM snow.
