DENVER — Winter weather returned to Colorado on Monday morning.

A winter weather system is bringing snow to much of northeastern Colorado as well as snow showers to the Front Range on Monday morning.

The biggest snow impacts are on the northeastern Colorado plains, where the National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a Winter Weather Advisory. The northeast corner of Colorado will see 3 to 6 inches of new snow, along with wind gusts up to 40 mph through 6 p.m. Monday.

Drivers will encounter slick roads and poor visibility on Monday.

The City of Boulder and City of Thornton each went on Accident Alert status during the Monday morning commute.

Snow amounts in the Denver metro area will be lower than the plains. The Denver area has seen between less than an inch and about 3 inches Monday, but temperatures will remain cold throughout the day.

Greeley, Fort Collins, Fort Morgan, Steamboat Springs, Gunnison, Aspen, Vail, Winter Park, Rifle, Sterling and Wray could all see more than 2 inches of new snow by Monday evening.
