Extended Outlook:
The weather is going to get a lot more active tomorrow with a mix of strong winds, fire danger, rain, and yes, snow!

Tuesday will see very strong winds from the mountains through the plains with 30 to 50 mph gusts expected along and east of I-25. We'll grab rain and snow over the mountains and valleys with a chance for late day thunderstorms in the far eastern plains. Snow will be possible in mountain towns like Woodland Park and La Veta Tuesday, but accumulations of more than a dusting on the grass are not expected.

We'll see the first widespread freeze Wednesday night through early Thursday morning.

A quick moving system could bring a mix of rain and snow Thursday night through early Friday morning. Snow could fall down to 6,000 feet by early Friday morning, but accumulations are unknown at this time.
