A secondary cold front will bring the potential for a passing snow shower late Wednesday night into Thursday morning, but impacts look very minor for most. Friday will be the warm before the storm as a slightly stronger cold front is expected to drop into the region as we enter the weekend. Right now, we're looking at a quick window of snowfall from late Friday night into early Saturday morning, and although it's too soon to talk snow totals, we are looking at a decent chance for light accumulations throughout Southern Colorado.
