Accumulations will range from 1-3″ for lower elevation areas of the plains to 3-6″ for some of our higher elevation areas like the Palmer Divide and Teller County. Areas of the Wets and Sangres will accumulate even more, especially the higher up in elevation. Skies work on drying out on Wednesday with highs only in the 30’s and 40’s. Plan on a chilly night for Trick-or-Treat and snow still on the ground for many areas. Mainly dry for the rest of the week with highs a touch below average.
