Freezing drizzle gave way to snow overnight, which means that there's a surprise hiding under the Monday morning blanket of the white stuff.

We're talking to you metro Denver, the foothills and the Eastern Plains.

If you're headed to work, be extra careful. The usual advice still applies: give yourself lots of extra time and slow it down. We observed a few crashes on our way into the newsroom this morning, so it's good advice.

Foothills and plains should expect 1 to 3 inches of snow by mid-morning. The hazardous road conditions will likely persist through much of the morning commute. Although, if you want to wait and grab an extra cup of coffee, the snow should tailor off during the later part of rush hour.

Your afternoon commute should be a normal one. Mostly sunny in the afternoon. Little to no snow. But don't expect too much of a melt-off with highs in the upper 20s.
