** A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 5am Monday for the Wet and the Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Winds over the mountains overnight will be gusting up tp 35 mph out of the northeast with 4 to 8 inches of new snow possible. **
Moderate to heavy snow pushed south across the Pikes Peak region down I-25 Sunday evening dropping 3 to 6 inches in about a 2 hour timeframe. Periods of snow will continue overnight for areas mainly along and west of I-25. With the exception of the mountains under the Winter Weather Advisory, additional snow accumulations will remain light ranging from a trace to 2 inches through Monday morning. Winds will pick up overnight as well coming out of the north sustained at 10 to 20 mph with higher gusts possible at times. Temperatures Monday morning will range from the mid 20s to the mid 30s. Factor in the breezy wind with the cold temperatures and Monday morning will be a chilly one with wind chill values in the teens.
The area of low pressure that brought us all this wintry weather the last few days will finally pull away from the state Monday. This will lead to skies gradually clearing across the region. It looks nice weatherwise for us here in Colorado Tuesday through the holiday weekend with mostly sunny skies overhead and above average highs in the 50s.
