KUSA - Skies are clearing quickly across the Front Range as snow moves out of the state Monday morning. Cold temperatures and snow-packed roads have meant icy conditions for many drivers.

However, sunshine and above freezing temperatures should allow the snow to melt quickly Monday afternoon.

As expected, more snow fell on the south and west sides of town than in northern Colorado. Most locations around the Denver metro area saw 1.5 to 7 inches of new snow.

Locations near Douglas and Elbert Counties saw 6 to 12 inches of new snow. Front Range foothills and mountain areas received 5 to 15 inches of new snow. Locations in northern Colorado and along the eastern plains got 2 to 5 inches of now snow Sunday to Monday night.

Temperatures dropped into the upper teens and low 20s Monday morning, putting tender plants at risk for the hard freeze. Highs Monday afternoon will be chilly, only reaching the middle 40s.

Mild weather will return, briefly Tuesday with highs in the middle 60s along the Front Range.
