After seeing a break on Sunday across much of the state, the next winter storm will dive into the state tonight. Expect snow to build back into the Four Corners and Northern Mountains tonight. Snow will continue from the Northern Mountains to the West Central part of the state during the day Monday. Even the metro could see a few passing showers, but most of the activity will stay north. Monday night the storm will start to lift out, but a back door cold front will drive down the east. That will allow good snow chances along the east facing slopes Monday night into Tuesday. Conditions clear across the entire state for Wednesday as temps begin to moderate.
