5 EYEWITNESS NEWS Chief Meteorologist Ken Barlow tells commuters to plan ahead for the next couple of days as weather authorities become more certain areas of the state will receive multiple inches of snow.

Snow is expected to come in waves starting late Monday night through Tuesday night.

Areas of the south metro could receive up to five inches of snow, Barlow says, and 2-4 inches are likely everywhere else.
