The second full day is Spring is going to feel pretty good out there, and that’s with heavy afternoon cloud cover!

High temperatures will be a couple of degrees warmer than Wednesday despite the cloud cover with a stronger wind in the afternoon.

Rain and snow return to southern Colorado Friday, but it’s kind of a tricky forecast with dramatic changes over the elevations. For Colorado Springs from the morning to the afternoon, rain is expected to fall. After 5 pm, rain will start to change to snow on the north side of town, but no real accumulation is expected until night time when things get much colder. From Briargate and areas north, anywhere from a dusting to an inch or two is expected to stick to the grass and some of the pavement. Monument Hill and Teller County will see the most snow, with Teller county getting snow from the morning through the overnight hours, and Monument Hill seeing a snow change after 3 pm. Some of the best snow will be seen over the Sangre De Cristos from Friday morning through Friday night, with a few inches through the Wet mountains. Saturday looks sunny and dry with highs back in the 60s!
