Periods of light snow will continue over the Front Range and mountains today. Additional snow accumulation is likely for many areas. An additional 3 to 6 inches of snow is possible over Teller County. The Palmer Divide, the Wets, and the Sangres are looking to pick up an additional 2 to 4 inches of snow today. Most areas along the Front Range from Colorado Springs south to Trinidad can expect 1 to 3 inches of new snow. Isolated snow showers are possible over the Southeastern Plains throughout the day today dropping a trace to an inch of snow in areas. Please keep in mind that isolated higher amounts are possible in spots. Be careful if you plan on being out on the roads today. Some roads may be snow packed and/or icy.
It'll be cold this weekend with highs in the 20s/30s and lows in the single digits/teens. After a snowy day today, dry conditions will take hold of the region Super Bowl Sunday (also Groundhog Day) with mostly sunny skies expected.
The weather pattern will remain unsettled throughout the workweek with another storm system taking aim at Colorado late Monday and Tuesday. Accumulating snow is likely as this system pushes through the region though exact amounts aren't known at this time. Another system looks to impact our area again on Thursday. Expect little in the way of sunshine Monday through Friday and cold temperatures.
