Tonight's Forecast: Snow showers will become more numerous overnight tonight, with snow tapering off in most spots early Tuesday morning. The big concern with tonight's forecast, and quite frankly the big question mark for us will be where the heaviest snow bands develop. The best chance of seeing the heavy snow bands appears to be in the vicinity of Highway 50, but any changes to the position of these snow bands could result in some isolated higher totals in other areas. Snow totals will be variable across the region, with the highest amounts generally expected to be over the Wet Mountains and northern El Paso County.
