The system that brought all the wintry weather and cold to Colorado this weekend will finally move east and away from the state tonight. It'll leave behind one more very cold night with temperatures bottoming out in the single digits and teens in most spots. With clearing skies overhead and moisture at the surface, areas of freezing fog will develop mainly for areas along and south of Highway 50 tonight (southern I-25 corridor and Southeastern Plains). Be extra careful if you have to be out on the roads between now and Monday morning due to possible icing and low visibility.
It'll be nice and dry Monday with mostly sunny skies around the region. Expect it to be warmer as well with highs in the 50s across the lower elevations. Areas with snow cover on the ground will be cooler in the 40s. It'll remain mild through midweek with Thursday looking like the warmest day of the next seven. A cold front is forecast to move through Southern Colorado Friday bringing our next chance for rain/snow.
