Breezy with chance for showers

On Sunday, generally drier and warmer conditions should be noted over the region. Although isolated mainly late afternoon and evening showers will be possible. Expect snow to be ongoing over the mountains and spread east into Teller county and the Palmer Divide quickly. Cold air will move in quickly behind the front putting snow levels down to near 6,000 ft, making a few inches of snow accumulation possible over Teller county and northern El Paso county by Monday morning.

On Monday an easterly upslope flow behind the front will keep rain and higher elevation snow going along the eastern mountains and lee slopes through much of the day.

By Tuesday, a high pressure over the intermountain west will shift east over the Rockies and persist into Wednesday, causing dryer weather. Things will warm up by Wednesday, with temperatures warming rapidly. Look for the highs to be reaching into the mid-70s over the Plains. The approaching system will also bring in some strong winds flow across southern Colorado.

On Thursday, a strong low pressure system will bring much cooler weather, rain, and higher elevation snow to southern Colorado.
