DENVER — A cold and snowy day is on tap for the metro area Tuesday as a fast-moving snow storm is expected to bring about 1 to 2 inches of new snow to the area.
Light snow showers are possible this morning with more moderate snow this afternoon into the evening, according to meteorologist Jennifer Broome.
Southern and western suburbs in the Metro, Foothills and Palmer Divide should see 2 to 4 inches of snow.
A winter weather advisory is in effect for central and northern mountains where 4 to 8 inches of snow is possible.
Watches & Warnings
Winds will also be an issue Tuesday. Gusts of 25-35 mph are possible this afternoon in the Metro.
Highs will only reach into the 20s.
The snow could stick around as late as Tuesday night, but will move out by Wednesday morning.
Another snow storm is expected to move across the state Thursday. That one looks like it will produce snow in the mountains but dry out before making it to the Metro.
The good news is the weekend, where temperatures are forecast to climb into the 50s.
