KUSA - The heavy snow that brought 2 to 4 inches of snow to many parts of the Front Range, including the Denver area is moving out.
Partly cloudy skies will take over after lunch time with highs, below average, in the 40s.
A surge of northerly winds pushed bands of heavy snow south into the metro area Tuesday morning. That system is now quickly coming to an end and skies will clear through the rest of the day.
While the storm was a big inconvenience for drivers, with delays citywide and many accidents, the moisture is welcome. Official snow totals at DIA measured 3.9 inches. That brings the total for snow in March up to 11.3 inches. The average snow for Denver in March is 11.5 inches, and we're only half way through the month.
Once skies clear Tuesday afternoon a dry weather pattern will set up for the next couple of days. Partly cloudy to mostly sunny skies are in store through Friday for the Front Range, with highs climbing into the 70s by the end of the week.
