Winter Storm Watch in effect for the highest elevations - Teller County, Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains - from 6 PM Wednesday through 4 AM Thursday. Anywhere from half to a full foot of snow will be possible from this next storm.
We're already seeing the clouds from our next storm. Wednesday we'll start off the day dry, but by lunchtime the showers will start to move in. From noon through midnight, most of the showers that fall will be in the form of rain - excluding highest elevations which will see snow. Then temperatures dip, creating the potential for some freezing rain, sleet and wintry mix overnight. Most of this will come to an end by/around the morning commute on Thursday. But even though the moisture moves out, temperatures will stay cool. Highs on Thursday will only be in the 30s and 40s.
Friday the weather starts to improve. It's back to dry, sunny weather as temperatures start to climb once again. The weekend doesn't look to bad either. Right now we're looking at some clouds that will pester much of the region - and I'll mention a small chance for some spotty showers - but temperatures will be better than the next few days.
Next week the weather pattern wants to warm us back to the 70s.
Hopefully you didn't put away the winter gear just yet... Meteorologist Valerie Abati
