Big changes are on the way, not just in our weather but in our weather pattern. The weather pattern will set us up for more prolonged cold with more frequent bouts of snow. The first round of snow will fall in Southern Colorado on Friday, though a few areas could see some snow begin as early as Thursday night. That's particularly true for Teller County and northern El Paso County. High temperatures this afternoon will be in the mid-to-upper 40's for most areas with lower 50's in southern areas from Trinidad to Springfield.
This system could bring 3-6" of snow to much of the I-25 corridor with 6-12" of snow expected for higher elevations west of the interstate including the Wet Mountains. Snow will amount to 1-3" down south closer to Walsenburg and Trinidad and across the Southeastern Plains.
The next big snow maker will move through on Monday.
