So far the forecast seems to be calling for light to moderate snow through this afternoon before the snow machine cranks up to more heavy snowfall overnight. There will be a break on Tuesday before periods of moderate to heavy snow fall from Tuesday night through Thursday.

All road surfaces remain under a very icy and snow-packed mix along I-70. Slower travel speeds and possible road closures due to accidents will remain in place through the remainder of the week, so check CDOT and take your time.
