A strong low-pressure system should pass by to the north of Colorado this afternoon and evening. Snow should continue in many mountains areas with blowing snow at the passes. At least light accumulations will reach into the foothills for places like Nederland and Estes Park.
Along the lower foothills and plains the significant snow is likely to stay north of Cheyenne, with lighter accumulations and a blustery wind probable in the Cheyenne area. For Fort Collins-Boulder-Denver-Colorado Springs and the adjacent lower foothills, a few showers (rain or snow pellets this afternoon and snow this evening) will likely affect some areas this afternoon and evening. Little or no accumulation is expected. Expect it to be about 15 degrees colder on Tuesday.
