Colorado Springs will likely see more snow Monday night and Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter weather advisory for parts of Teller County, northern El Paso County and areas along the Palmer Divide. The advisory will be in effect from 5 p.m. Monday to 2 a.m. Tuesday. 

The Rampart Range and the east slope of Pikes Peak could see 3 to 6 inches of snow, while 2 to 4 inches is expected across the remainder of Teller County and northern El Paso County. Anywhere from 3 to 7 inches is possible along the Palmer Divide.

Starting at 4 p.m. there is a 50% chance for snow, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo. Expect a high temperature of 35 degrees on Monday with an overnight low of 11.

Slick and slippery roads may be a problem Tuesday morning, according to meteorologist Kathy Torgerson from the weather service. The storm should settle down by late Tuesday morning, with mostly sunny skies in the afternoon and a high of 28.

A slight chance for snow showers returns in the forecast on Wednesday. For the later part of the week, expect sunnier skies. Temperatures will warm to 40 on Thursday and 47 on Friday.

Parts of the central Colorado mountains are still recovering from a weekend of heavy snow. Breckenridge Ski Resort received 39 inches of snow in 48 hours, which caused parts of the mountain to close on Sunday for safety reasons. 

Much of Colorado Springs received a dusting of snow Sunday, which followed as much as 9 inches in parts of the area Friday.
