A weak cold front approaching from the northwest will bring cooler temperatures into Colorado for our Friday. Expect highs in the upper 40's and lower 50's today with plenty of sun, and clouds at times. A flurry cannot be ruled out after 10 PM in the high elevations in northern El Paso County. A quick hit of light snow is possible along the New Mexico border near Trinidad after 4 AM Saturday, though neither area has a particularly high probability of seeing snow. The cold front moving through will bring even colder air into Southern Colorado for Saturday, when high temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 40's for most areas.
Friday night is the second half of the two-night peak of the Geminid meteor shower. The meteors lit up the sky at times Thursday night and early Friday morning. Cloudy spots will be unable to see the show, but in the clear spots we should be able to see a few of the meteors streaking across the sky. In the early evening, the meteors will appear to come from the east. After midnight, they will radiate from almost directly overhead.
