(DENVER, Colo.) Denver weather will begin mild and sunny for the most part, with a high temperature around 50 Monday.

Expect seasonal temperatures Monday to turn colder into the evening.

The sun kissed the skies over the Mile High City Monday at 7:13 a.m. and is expected to set at 5:10 p.m. The air quality index in Denver as of 9:24 a.m. was good at 47, posing little or no health risk. 

The primary pollutant in the air Monday is nitrogen oxides which often are produced by fires, power plants and traffic.

Expect east winds at speeds of 5 to 7 mph Monday, with gusts potentially reaching as high as 16 mph. The National Weather Service in Boulder forecasts a 50 percent chance of snow after midnight, with mostly cloudy conditions. 

The low-temperature Monday evening will be near 22, with east winds expected at speeds of 5 to 7 mph, becoming north after midnight. NWS Boulder expects new snow accumulation to be less than one inch.

There will be a winter weather advisory in place Tuesday from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. for sections of east-central and northeast Colorado for snow. NWS Boulder expects the total snow accumulations to be 2 to 5 inches.

Snow Tuesday morning will make commuting difficult and dangerous. NWS Boulder is advising commuters to expect slow morning travel, with slick, slow and snow-covered roads. The heaviest snow is expected to fall Tuesday morning.

Snow will decrease from north to south by Tuesday afternoon.
