Brighter skies and slightly warmer air are in store for much of southern Colorado before light snow returns later today and tonight. Temperatures under the sunshine will soar into the 40s and even a few 50s out in the plains before a cold front pushes through the region at the end of the day. The cloud cover will increase in the late afternoon, and light snow will follow. Snowfall totals will be minimal through the region, with the best collection expected along the eastern slopes of our southern mountains. We'll by dry but cold by Friday morning.
