WEEKEND OUTLOOK OR NEXT WEATHER MAKER
Rain in the low elevations and snow in the high elevations is expected Thursday late in the morning through the afternoon. Snow through areas like Teller county could stack up to around 1, maybe 2 inches by Thursday night. Rain across the lower elevations will be very light and scattered with most of the moisture actually falling around the Pikes Peak region. Friday looks dry and amazing with any rain sticking over the central mountains and a dry and warm Saturday for Cinco De Mayo!
