Cold front Sunday brings snow and cold to Southern Colorado

It'll be mostly clear overnight with temperatures falling back into the 20s/30s. A cold front will move south through Southern Colorado during the day Sunday. Despite the frontal passage, Sunday still looks to be a nice day with mostly sunny skies and mild highs in the 50s/60s. By sunset, clouds will be increasing from north to south as areas of light snow develop.

Periods of snow can be expected from Sunday night through Monday across all of Southern Colorado. The eastern mountains and Front Range look to pick up anywhere from 1 to 3 inches of new snow during this time frame. Keep in mind that isolated locations may pick up an additional inch or two. Snow accumulations of less than 2 inches are expected over the Southeastern Plains.

Monday will be cloudy and cold as well with highs in the 20s.  The region will clear out by Tuesday though the cold air will remain. Tuesday's highs will stay below average for this time of year in the 20s/30s. Milder air returns by midweek with most locations east of the mountains topping out in the 50s. There's 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 remain mainly dry and seasonal. Stay tuned over the coming days for updates!
