The full list of reports is available here from the National Weather Service.

Through midday into Tuesday afternoon, snow continues for many areas. The animated timeline shows clearing will occur from the afternoon in the metro areas to the plains this evening.

Here is a look at the short-range HRRR model to show potential additional snowfall.

As far as temperatures, don't expect much warming today or Wednesday, so the melt will be slow.

Tuesday afternoon temperatures:

Road conditions are subject to road crews efforts, but generally speaking, the conditions will rapidly improve late Tuesday through Wednesday.

Air travelers, unless you are flying to a major hub expecting this storm, perhaps Chicago, your flight progress leaving DIA will improve, too.

We'll have a full storm recap and look ahead to the next snowfall event to come later this week in future posts today and tomorrow.

Enjoy the snow!
