Overview: Warmer and dry over eastern Colorado today but snow will fall over the ski resorts. Cold air will settle over the rest of the state as we head into the work week and some areas in eastern Colorado may also receive some snow.
Today: The air overhead will warm nicely but some mountain wave clouds may shade many areas at times. There will be some wind today over and near the mountains, and many other areas may be breezy at times. Snow will continue to fall over the mountains along and west of the Continental Divide during the day. High temperatures will reach the 50s to lower 60s across much of eastern Colorado Sunday afternoon with our local mountain areas generally in the 40s, but the high country will be considerably colder.
Tonight: Snow will continue to fall over the high country while eastern Colorado will remain partly cloudy and breezy at times with low temperatures in the 20s to lower 30s for most areas.
Extended: Colder and unsettled weather will settle over eastern Colorado for the first half of next week. Currently it appears that mainly light snow will be possible for various parts of eastern Colorado starting Monday night and lasting into Wednesday night. Accumulating snow could fall intermittently for different areas in eastern Colorado during this period, but impacts to travel, if they occur, would be most likely on the higher terrain along and west of I-25 where the air will be colder and periods of accumulating snow would be more likely to overcome roadways. We expect dry conditions through the end of the week with gradually warming air.
