COLORADO, USA — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Danielle Grant

THIS EVENING AT A GLANCE: Another storm is on the way to Colorado! It'll move in overnight bringing chilly temperatures and more snow. Look for light snow to start around midnight in Northern Colorado with showers beginning in Denver around 3am.

Can you work from home Tuesday? The heaviest snowfall is expected during the morning commute from 6am to 10am. So far, it looks like about 3 to 6 inches across the Denver metro area with higher amounts west of I-25, lower amounts east of I-25. The far Eastern Plains could see 2 to 5 inches of snow. Look for 4 to 8 inches of snow across the Front Range foothills by Tuesday night.

A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Front Range foothills, metro area and Eastern Plains through Tuesday evening for heavy snow and slick traveling conditions. Take it slow if you're out on the roads!

As this storm moves out, the sunshine briefly moves back in Wednesday! Daytime highs stay in the lower 40s but another cold front moves in Wednesday night. This drops temperatures again Thursday into the lower 30s and also ushers in a few morning flurries.
