A weather alert day for snow and slick roads in Denver is set for Monday

DENVER (KDVR) – An exact weather alert day has been issued for Monday as snow moves into Denver’s weather forecast Sunday night into Monday.

Cold temperatures will help snowfall accumulate, which could lead to slippery roads, especially during morning driving. Wind speeds reach more than 40 knots per hour at times, leading to snowfall and reduced horizontal visibility.

A combination of winter weather warnings, winter storm warnings, high wind warnings and blizzard warnings will remain in effect through Monday.

While these areas will see varying amounts of snowfall and wind, the overall message with all warnings is that travel may be difficult due to slick roads and falling snow limiting visibility.

Weather Tonight: Cold, late snow showers

Sunday night, snow showers will begin moving into the area, increasing in the metro after midnight. Temperatures will be cool but seasonable, dropping into the upper teens.

Weather tomorrow: snow, cold temperatures, strong breeze

On Monday, the snow showers will end. The Denver area is only looking for a total of between one and three inches, with higher totals of between three and six inches in areas like Castle Rock.

Even as the snow ends, wind gusts exceeding 30 mph at times will continue to blow snow and limit visibility. Roads will be slippery not only for morning driving, but may remain slippery throughout the day as high temperatures will only reach the lower 30s.

Looking Ahead: Colder week, more snow chances

On Tuesday, sunshine returns to the forecast helping bring temperatures back to seasonal norms in the 40s.

Another system moves in by the end of the week. This will lead to increased chances of snow and another significant drop in temperatures.
