A messy system will move in around sunrise Sunday, impacting the area with a mix of snow showers and the threat of a wintry mix through Monday. Snow showers will come in waves which should give crews time to catch up as they treat roads, but icy spots will still be possible.

A period of snow should fall through early afternoon Sunday with a wintry mix of freezing rain and rain possible from I-70 south. A second wave of snow will develop late Sunday and early Monday leaving untreated roads snow covered and icy for the Monday morning commute.

Snow totals will vary based on the eventual track and timing of this system but a general 3-to-5 inches of snow is expected through Monday. The details of this storm are still coming into focus and the forecast will change. Our entire team of meteorologists will be working through the weekend to bring you the latest updates and impacts.
