Areas further south and east, including Prince William County, are under a hazardous weather outlook for the same wintry mix, with roads already slippery throughout the area.

Winter Storm Oliver is battering parts of the Northwest with snow and ice.

In the Northern Wasatch Front and Cache Valley, the snow will start to fall around Sunday afternoon and last through the night. The track of this storm shows some promise of being a pretty good snow-maker for the mountains as well as the Denver area! Periods of heavier snow showers could quickly accumulate on roadways.

Highs on Monday for Denver will only be in the upper 20s-with snow, then upper teens with snow for Tuesday. Northeast wind 5 to 10 miles per hour. Wind chills will make it feel like -12 degrees and accumulation of 1 to 2 inches is possible.

As the snow ends and the sky clears, it gets very cold by Tuesday morning.

This storm hits during a holiday weekend, which could make road travel dangerous.This looks to be the most significant storm for the region all winter season. They also suggest that drivers fill up their gas tanks before leaving.
