Most areas received three-tenths to an inch of snow from the overnight storm.
Denver Public Works crews monitored conditions Monday night and applied materials to areas known for ice buildup, such as bridges and overpasses. While not enough to push off the roadway with a plow, the light snowfall Monday night froze to the pavement, resulting in slick conditions system-wide. This thin layer of ice is difficult to mitigate, as liquid deicers lose their effectiveness in such cold temperatures and the dry material works best in more snow-packed conditions.
Morning temperatures will stay below freezing with partly cloudy skies Tuesday morning, according to the Colorado weather forecast.
Afternoon highs are forecast to be between 39 and 44 degrees.
Partly cloudy skies are forecast Tuesday evening with lows from 20 to 24 degrees.
