Even with the snow moving out in the Denver area, Sunday afternoon daytime highs are expected to be only in the lower 30s. Temperatures along I-25 will climb into the mid to upper 30s with partly cloudy skies. Front Range Mountains will still see a possibility for light snow throughout the day with highs in the mid to upper teens. Overnight lows are forecast from 15 to 20 degrees, with some mountain communities and valleys dropping into the single digits and below zero temperatures.
Snowfall accumulations have varied for the high country with bigger totals coming from Southwest Colorado with above a foot and a half of snow. Additional accumulations of 1 to 4 inches are still possible in the mountains, but snow activity will diminish before midnight.
Most WINTER STORM WARNINGS will expire at 6 pm on Sunday, but still includes areas like Trappers Lake, Grand and Battlement Mesas, and Northern Saun Juans. Snow storm totals through this evening from 10 to 20 inches are possible for Telluride, Ouray and Lake City. Eastern Sawatch Mountains above 11,000 feet could receive up to 16 inches through this afternoon. West to northwest winds from 20 to 35 mph will frequently cause blowing snow and visibility below 2 miles.
Most WINTER WEATHER ADVISORIES will also expire at 6 pm on Sunday because of periods of snow that will still cause travel difficulties. The cities of Aspen, Vail and Snowmass could see snow totals from 7 to 14 inches. Steamboat Springs and Vicinity are expected to receive from 4 to 8 inches.
Dry weather and above seasonal temperatures are expected through Thursday. The next chance for snow in the mountains is forecast for the end of the week, while the Front Range will remain mostly dry.
