Forecast: A quiet, mild Friday will be followed up by a thermal cliff Saturday and Sunday, where a cold front is barreling through again at the end of a mild finish to a week. The front plows through early Saturday amidst heavy cloud cover, and brings some up-slope snow through much of the day and evening. But, the snow will be light, and will have a hard time accumulating during the daytime, and will be fizzling out by nightfall.
So, expect a couple inches, Monument/Black Forest way, maybe an inch or so Springs, but just a dusting Pueblo and points south and east. Not much even for the mountains, west, either.
Bright and dry weather resumes Sunday, with a steady warm up Monday and all of next week.
