Today: Becoming mostly sunny, breezy at times and warmer today. The air overhead would support 50s and 60s for most areas but much of the sun's energy will go into melting the fresh snow. Where the snow was significant the temperatures will probably remain in the 40s, but for areas that didn't receive much snow 50s are more likely.
Tonight: Increasing clouds and becoming breezy late as the next cold front approaches the area. Snow will develop again over the ski resorts but we should remain dry locally. We expect low temperatures in the teens and 20s across the area.
Sunday: Becoming cloudy with areas of snow developing during the day. Snow looks to be focused near the higher terrain along and west of I-25 where some areas could receive several inches of a light, airy snow through Sunday night. Temperatures will generally fall from north to south as the cold front makes its way across the area so we expect everyone will be colder with afternoon temperatures likely in the 20s and 30s for most areas.
Extended: Snow may continue to fall over parts of our area Monday and Tuesday with the focus for any significant accumulations of snow likely south of the Arkansas River. Most areas look dry and a little warmer on Wednesday although some spotty snow showers may develop over the mountains late in the day into Wednesday night. Scattered snow showers may develop over a few more areas on Thursday although it doesn’t currently appear that snowfall will be heavy right now. The bottom line is this week will be cooler than average and unsettled with a warming trend perhaps taking hold by the end of the week.
