The snowstorm crossing Colorado could reach Denver tonight, bringing either light snow or a nasty, icy mix.

As of Monday morning, light snow was falling largely on the mountains north of Interstate 70. That could turn to moderate snow this evening, and it could reach Denver and the I-25 corridor later in the evening, according to the National Weather Service.

The storm could put up to 4 inches on the plains overnight, but it also could arrive as mixed precipitation in Denver. Combined with cold temperatures, that could create slick roads and a painful commute for Tuesday morning.

Light snow is likely to continue across much of the metro all the way until Tuesday evening, though it won’t accumulate much more, NWS predicts. After Tuesday, temperatures should return to seasonal norms in the 50s.
