After areas of snow and freezing fog this morning, the afternoon looks more tranquil with only isolated rain/snow showers possible across Southern Colorado under mostly cloudy skies. It won't be as cold today with highs in the 30s. Snow amounts will remain limited throughout the day over the lower elevations to under an inch.
Periods of snow are once again possible around the region later tonight. Winds are expected to pick up as well during the overnight hours gusting up to 30 mph in spots making for a chilly night with lows in the 20s and wind chill values in the single digits. Again, snow amounts will be limited to no more than 2 inches at best across the Front Range and Eastern Plains. An additional 2 to 4 inches of new snow is possible over the Wets and Sangres.
The system responsible for our recent wintry weather will finally push away from the state Monday which will lead to gradually clearing skies and warming temperatures during the first couple days of the shortened workweek. The holiday weekend looks great with mostly sunny skies overhead and above average highs in the 50s for most areas.
