The storm system responsible for bringing several feet of snow to the high country and several inches of the white stuff to parts of the lower elevations over the last few days finally moves out of the region overnight. Expect the snow to end in most areas by midnight tonight. Clouds will be variable overnight with patchy freezing fog developing in spots that see some clearing.
Please remember to be careful out on the roads overnight into Sunday morning. Some roads will remain snow covered and/or icy, so take it slow, give yourself extra time to get where you need to go, and keep plenty of room between you and the car in front of you.
Sunday is Groundhog Day and Super Bowl Sunday (Go Broncos!). Colorado will be in between storm systems Sunday which means a dry and mostly sunny day is on tap for us, but it will remain cold out with highs in the 20s/30s.
Our next system will start to affect the mountains Monday with snow expected to move across the lower elevations Monday night. Light snow will continue through the day Tuesday as well. Accumulating snow is likely as this system pushes through the region. As of right now, it looks like the mountains and Eastern Plains will see the highest snow amounts with this system. Stay tuned.
The remainder of the workweek continues to look unsettled and cold with another system possibly bringing more snow to Southern Colorado Thursday. No warm-up is expected either with lows in the single digits/teens throughout the week and highs generally in the 20s/30s.
