Warnings for Winter conditions in much of Colorado

We wake up with good weather conditions, mostly sunny and with temperatures in the 40-degree range. The changes come in the afternoon with the passage of a cold front generating strong winds, drop in temperatures and accumulated snow that could vary between 3 to 6 inches depending on the area where you are.

The largest snow accumulations are expected towards the mountain slopes, Boulder, Golden and Castle Rock with accumulated between 5 to 8 inches of snow.

The National Weather Service issued a winter weather advisory that will be in effect for much of Colorado from 3 p.m. Monday to 3 a.m. Tuesday. An advisory was also issued for the northwest of the state for the Rocky Mountain National Park, Medicine Bow Range, and Northern Front Range Foothills areas. These areas could receive 6 to 14 inches of snow, with winds of up to 35 mph. Travel conditions will be difficult if you head towards these areas.

The winds are another important factor to consider for today as they will be blowing between 25 mph up to 50 mph with higher gusts in the higher areas.

The snow will be with us until the early hours of Tuesday when the weather conditions gradually begin to improve, maximum temperatures stay in the low 40s range.
