Denver weather: Snow and slushy with slick roads

Snow showers could bring up to two inches of snow in parts of metro Denver Tuesday, with most of it melting before it accumulates, according to the National Weather Service.

More snow was expected to fall in the mountains and foothills.

Weather service forecasters on Tuesday morning issued a winter weather advisory for Colorado’s northern Front Range as snow showers spread down from the mountains to the high plains along the Interstate 25 corridor, heaviest in Larimer County.

Snow will taper off Tuesday and warmer, sunnier weather was expected later in the week.

The high temperature in Denver will be near 37 degrees Tuesday with winds at speeds up to 18 miles per hour and gusts as fast as 30 mph, the weather service said. No more than two inches of snow will accumulate, forecasters said, and the temperature will decrease at night to 20 degrees.

On Wednesday, the high temperature in Denver will be 45 degrees, the weather service said.

In western Colorado, winter storm warnings were in effect with as much as 20 inches of snow expected in the northern mountains with wind gusts at speeds up to 50 mph.

A red flag fire danger warning remained in effect for southeastern Colorado where dry grass and high winds created potentially hazardous conditions.
