But by the end of the afternoon, NWS expects temperatures to be in the teens and single digits with wind chill. Temperatures will stay low for the rest of the week across the plains and foothills, according to Monday morning's alert.

From Tuesday evening until Wednesday night, NWS says light snow is expected over the plains and foothills. Mountain snow is expected to develop by Wednesday afternoon and continue into the the weekend.
