Tonight will be cloudy, cold, and dry.

Extended Outlook:
Friday we're going to see the small chance for a few snow showers over our mountains, and maybe a few areas of showers from I-25 east to the plains in the morning. Most of the rain and snow on Friday will come after lunchtime, from the afternoon through the end of the day. Light snow is expected over the high county like the Front Range, down to the Wet and Sangre De Cristo mountains, with really just rain expected east towards I-25 and the adjacent plains.

The winds will get very strong Friday afternoon and blast with 40 to 60 mph gusts from Friday evening through Saturday at noon across the region. The weekend looks sunny and warmer, especially by Sunday.
