Boulder saw 8.3 inches of snow Sunday according to local meteorologist Matt Kelsch, with snowfall eventually stopping overnight. No snow is expected today and visibility is expected to be good, but cold temperatures mean icy conditions could make the morning commute messy.

it is open for classes this morning and running on a regular schedule after closing the University Memorial Center Sunday.
