KUSA -The storm that arrived in Colorado early in the weekend is moving out, but the winter weather is far from over. It will be cold and windy for the Front Range on Sunday, while snow lingers in the mountains.
Winds on the Front Range will be from 15 to 25 mph with higher winds expected on the Plains. The blizzard warning has expired but gusts could still reach up to 40 mph.
Wind speeds should improve through the afternoon and evening. Sunday highs are expected to be below seasonal averages and linger around the freezing mark. Overnight lows will drop into the single digits, making for a very cold start the school and work week on Monday morning.
The winter storm improved the Colorado snowpack this weekend, with snowfall amounts of up to a foot in the southern mountains. Additional snow can be expected through Monday afternoon, with several winter travel advisories still in effect.
WINTER STORM WARNINGS remain in effect through noon on Monday for cities like Aspen, Snowmass, Crested Butte, and Telluride. Wind gusts of up to 50 mph are possible in higher elevations causing blowing and drifting snow.
A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY remains in effect through midnight tonight for Steamboat Springs, Vicinity, and parts of the Sangre de Cristos Mountains. Traveling in this area will be hazardous with ice and snow covered roads and reduced visibility.
Temperatures for the Front Range will remain cold through Monday with highs in the 20s, and additional snowfall for the mountains. The dry and mild weather returns for the middle of the week with mostly sunny skies and highs in the low 40s. The next chance for snow will be from Wednesday through Friday, mostly for the high country.
