Bishop Machebeuf High School, Mile High Academy, Lutheran High School Parker, and Global Village Academy in Douglas County were among the other schools with a delayed opening.

According to the 9NEWS Weather team, the heaviest snow was expected to fall into early Monday morning, leading to a slick morning drive.

Winter weather travel alerts are in effect across the mountains and metro area through Monday afternoon.

The Denver metro will see about 2 to 5 inches stack up by Monday mid-morning. Look for a trace to 2 inches in Northern Colorado and potentially 3 to 7 inches of accumulation near Boulder and Golden.

The foothills could see another 6 to 12 inches out of this storm with slightly higher amounts along the peaks.
