Partly to mostly cloudy on Tuesday with a light breeze. A few snow showers will be over the mountain tops in the evening, with some light snow making it into the mountain valleys, generally for the Sawatch Range, and Park/Teller County.

Extended outlook forecast:
On Wednesday it will be even cool and remain cloudy. A surge of moisture will move in from the south, providing both rain and snow in our area. For the mountains and I-25 the change from rain to snow will occur rather quickly. But for the eastern plains, the transition from rain to snow will take longer which will impact snow accumulations. Regardless, good moisture is on the way to our region, especially south of HWY 50/Arkansas River. Snow will end for the mountains and I-25 by sunrise Thursday but linger in the eastern plains until about midday.
