Temperatures will likely hit their highs in the mid-morning across the plains with temperatures steady and falling through the afternoon.

Snow showers are expected Friday in parts of the region, but accumulation will be limited due to the strong northerly winds.

The biggest snow accumulations should be in the Wet Mountains and west of Walsenburg.
