WEEKEND OUTLOOK OR NEXT WEATHER MAKER
Snow across the Continental Divide will be pushed late tonight and early tomorrow morning into the Front Range and down along I-25 for Friday morning. Temperatures will start around and above freezing Friday morning so it’s likely we’ll see a brief rain first, especially for areas south of El Paso county that then quickly turn to a very wet snow. We look to get a break of rain and snow in the afternoon but after 4pm more snow will return to Teller county and Monument Hill, likely lasting after midnight especially on the Palmer Divide. The strongest winds in the area still look to be Friday night into Saturday morning but we’ll be dry Saturday.
