A narrow band of snow will bring flakes through Monday, then we'll see a break in the weather for the rest of the week.
Weatherwise, Sunday was a relatively quiet day with just light snowfall and low accumulations. This is because most of the storm energy stayed just to the north of the mountain.
On Sunday night into Monday morning, a narrow band of snow formed over northern Colorado and delivered 3 inches overnight at mid-mountain and 6+ inches overnight at the summit.
Now on Monday, the narrow band of snow should stay over the area for a lot of the day with 2-5 additional inches of snow. We could get less snow than this if the band moves a little faster to the south, and we could get more snow than this if the band slows down and hangs around for most of the day on Monday.
From Monday night into Tuesday, the band of snow will move to the south of the mountain and we should see dry weather with leftover soft snow and powder on Tuesday. The weather on Tuesday will become mostly sunny with a chilly high temperature in the single digits.
For Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, expect dry weather with lots of sunshine. Wednesday's high temperature will be in the teens, then Thursday and Friday will be warmer with a high temperature in the 20s.
Looking ahead, there will be three chances for storms through mid-February. The first storm will be around February 4-5 and could be weaker, the second storm will be around February 6-8 and could be stronger, and the third storm will be around February 12-14 and could be stronger.
