KUSA - A massive storm system sweeping across the upper Midwest, bringing deadly tornadoes and strong storms to that part of the country, is also impacting Colorado Monday.
Severe weather is not a part of it for Colorado, but rain and cool air is, according to the Colorado weather forecast.
Showers will be light, off and on, on Monday for the Front Range, eastern plains and foothills. Locations above 9,000 feet will see snow.
Northern mountain areas, including Rocky Mountain National Park, Rabbit Ears Pass and Willow Creek Pass were under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY, but that has been cancelled. Still, northern and central mountain areas will see 1 to 3 inches of new snow, mainly above 9,000 feet by late Monday evening.
The chance for rain showers will continue until late Monday night with a break from the rain expected overnight Monday and into Tuesday morning. Tuesday afternoon will be warmer, but isolated showers and thunderstorms will return in the afternoon.
Another chance for isolated showers and thunderstorm will continue into Wednesday, however dry, warm and windy weather for the end of the week may mean dry conditions rapidly return with another threat for wildfires.
