A wide range of temperatures will be found across Southern Colorado today. Cold air will stay entrenched over the far Eastern Plains where areas like Lamar look to stay in the 20s while spots closer to the mountains warm into the 50s/60s. The mountain foothills and southern I-25 corridor will be the warmest areas today. Winds will be gusty at times along and west of the mountains as well.
The region will stay generally cloudy today with isolated rain showers possible this afternoon for the warmer locations. Out east, an isolated snow shower is possible through the day. The mountains here locally including the San Juans and higher peaks of the Sangres look to easily pick up 4 to 8 inches of snow today. The central mountains are still on track to pick up an additional foot.
The clouds will stick around into tonight with isolated snow showers possible regionwide as temperatures fall back into the teens. An inch or two of snow is possible into Sunday for areas like the Palmer Divide, Teller County, and the far Southeastern Plains.
Quieter weather moves in for the workweek with dry conditions expected Monday through midweek as temperatures warm back to above average readings in the 50s/60s under mostly to partly sunny skies.
