They may be accompanied by locally strong wind gusts and brief downpours, with some areas expected to receive a half inch of rain by 7 a.m.

Unusual for the Northern Front Range, the forecast includes a prediction of ice accumulation - less than 0.1 inch, but enough to make the roads very slippery, according to a weather service advisory.

The storm system, which may occur late Sunday afternoon into Sunday evening, could produce 60 miles per hour winds and dime-size hail, the National Weather Service predicts.

Tuesday's storm will be followed by "blustery, dry and colder" weather from Wednesday through Friday.

The temperature reached 68 in uptown Charlotte on Sunday afternoon, just a few degrees shy of an 83-year record high for the date, according to National Weather Service records.

Sunday night will bring a chance of drizzle or light rain with overnight lows around 37 degrees, the National Weather Service says.

Thursday will see a 40 percent chance of showers before the day becomes mostly sunny.

TUESDAY: There will be a 50 percent chance of rain. Otherwise, it will be partly sunny, with a high near 59.
