COLORADO, USA — Ready for more snow?
After a storm dumped 6 to 12 inches of heavy, wet snow onto much of the Denver metro area overnight Wednesday, the next storm has already moved in.
The storm moved into the metro area last night, with rain changing to snow late. Expect roads to be slick Monday, especially because of some freezing drizzle with the system.
Thick fog will likely stick around throughout most of the day on Monday, leading to continued delays and issues at Denver International Airport. Visibility has been regularly down to 1/8th of a mile or less at DIA.
Snow will fall mostly during the afternoon on Monday, with some bursts of heavier snow possible. Travel will probably be difficult across the Denver area for the Monday evening commute, and it'll likely stay slick for the Tuesday morning commute, as well.
After about 1 inch of snow fell Sunday night into Monday morning, expect more freezing drizzle this morning and more snow this afternoon. Another 1 to 2 inches of snow will fall before the storm ends tonight.
In the Denver area, a total of 1 to 4 inches of snow is likely as the system passes by.
The National Weather Service issued a winter storm warning from 3 p.m. Friday through 6 p.m. Monday for northern mountain areas above 9,000 feet. Because of the snow, Summit County urged those who had plans to travel to the mountains this weekend to stay home.
Nearly all lodging in Summit County were booked for the holiday weekend, so Brian Bovaird, the director of emergency management, said it would be difficult for anyone who gets stranded to find somewhere to stay.
