Today’s Forecast:
Dry, breezy and fairly quiet across southern Colorado today while the mountains to our west brace for periods of heavy snow through the weekend. We'll see cloudy skies today with a nice breeze through the afternoon. Temperatures will be above average today with most areas east of the mountains warming into the lower 50s. Overnight we'll keep a mix of clouds and clear skies around, but with a stronger breeze keeping temperatures in the 20s and a few low 30s.

Extended Outlook:
The mountains west in and around the Continental Divide will see periods of heavy snow starting today and lasting through Sunday. If you're going to be driving out west over the next few days, please just monitor the road conditions and let people know when you're leaving. We are going to be dry on Friday across southern Colorado, but a few stray snow showers and flurries are possible in Teller County and western Fremont County. Light snow is expected to be more widespread through our region on Saturday, with more snow happening on Sunday. Sunday looks to drop pretty heavy accumulation through our region, so plan out any travel carefully.
