While temperatures in Colorado's mountains are expected to hit the 40s and 50s on Monday, another cold wave of weather will soon be moving through.

On Tuesday, a widespread chance of precipitation will be present in parts of Colorado, likely to come in the form of snow in the state's northern mountains. According to OpenSnow, scattered chances of showers during the day on Tuesday will make way for bigger accumulation overnight. Forecasts currently range from two to six inches as the storm moves through, which a chance for a few more inches in higher elevation areas. The higher elevation areas around Pikes Peak may also get some snow.

The National Weather Service warns that this storm could produce slick roads in impacted areas, as well as windy conditions as the storm moves out of the state.

This comes just days after record highs were broken in Colorado, including one that stood for more than 130 years.
