After a very snowy January, this month has been pretty sunny and warm, but that's about to change.

It's going to get colder throughout the day Tuesday, with snow coming into the Denver area this evening. A winter weather advisory will be in effect starting at 5 p.m. through midnight Wednesday.

Temps could fall to about 14 degrees Wednesday night and we can expect gusts above 20 mph. The NWS said the Denver metro area could see 4-8 inches of snow. Areas to the south could  get up to 10 inches.

"That's going to continue overnight and into early tomorrow morning, so really the main thing that we're really pegging right now is that it's going to be a pretty messy morning commute," said National Weather Service forecaster Caitlyn Mesch.

Mesch said people should avoid travel in the early morning if they can because roads will be slick and visibility will be low, but added that conditions should improve by late afternoon.

So soak up the sun while you can, brush up on winter driving tips and get ready to shovel.
