A weather system will move to the south of the region during through the next 24 hours, bringing snow to the mountains and scattered showers and a few thunderstorms to the lower elevations. Snow accumulations over the southwest and central mountains will range between 4 to 8 inches with higher amounts. Snow accumulations over Pikes Peak, the Sangre De Cristo mountains, and Wet mountains will range between 2 and 4 inches with locally heavier amounts.
It looks like a typical Spring week ahead, as the area moves from a period of warm and dry weather the first half of the week.
Monday morning will start off with a chance for rain, but by late morning expect clearing conditions. Temperatures should be a seasonable with highs in the 60s to around 70 over the plains.
Tuesday and Wednesday, temperatures soar to about 10 degrees warmer over the plains. Storm tracking across the state will remain well to the north, until Wednesday evening as the front lowers. This will bring an increasing chance of precipitation across the area.
