Heavy snow during morning commmute, February 16.  Denver, CO | Brendan Heberton

Some roads in and around Denver are extremely treacherous due to snow melt freezing on roads after dark. Please allow extra time Tuesday morning and double your typical following distance between your car and the car in front of you.

We'll dry things out for Tuesday, but temperatures will remain cool. Our attention then turns to the end of the week when our next system is set to develop across Great Basin and bring another chance for snow across eastern Colorado. Much to be interested in here... but still plenty of factors at play. Look for an in-depth update tomorrow.
