Enjoy the mostly sunny and mild conditions this afternoon because a blast of winter moves in tonight. A cold front will move through Southern Colorado this afternoon. After sunset, clouds will increase across the region, temperatures will fall, and snow will develop mainly along and west of I-25.
The cold, cloudy, and snowy conditions will continue regionwide through Monday night. Snow will be off and on with accumulations remaining in the 1 to 3 inch range anywhere from the eastern mountains, Front Range, and Southeastern Plains. Isolated areas may receive an additional inch or two. Sunshine will return to the region Tuesday, but it'll remain cold out. Expect chilly highs in the 20s for both Monday and Tuesday.
Milder air moves in Wednesday with highs jumping back to above average readings in the 50s. There is still some uncertainty as to what will happen weatherwise for the end of the week. Right now, the mountains look to receive some additional snow while the lower elevations look to remain mainly dry with highs in the 40s/50s. Stay tuned over the coming days for updates!
