Snow mixed with rain will occur this evening before tapering off by very early Wednesday morning. Snow levels will hover between 5,000 and 6,000 feet and not much accumulation is expected below 6,000 feet. This will be a fairly weak first round of weather during an active forecast period. The biggest impacts will be across the mountains, Palmer Divide and Teller County. These areas could see a few inches of slushy snowfall for the Wednesday morning commute.

CANON CITY: Low: 34; High: 53. Tonight's storm will mostly be a rain-maker and not a snow producer across the Arkansas River Basin, although we can't rule out snow mixing in and some light accumulations. Dry skies Wednesday will give way to more rain and snow showers Wednesday night.

PLAINS: Low: 30s; High: 40s/50s. Not much moisture expected for the Plains tonight, with only isolated rain showers possible. Wednesday's weather will follow with a dry and breezy forecast.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. We'll see lighter snowfall totals across the Wet Mountains compared to the Sangre de Cristo Range, where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect until 6 am. As much as 4-8" of snow is possible over the higher peaks of the Sangres. Snow showers will be possible through the day on Wednesday, increasing Wednesday night.

Extended Outlook:
Life on the storm track will keep us busy through the end of the week. Thursday's unsettled weather could also include some thunderstorms. Highs will be much cooler Friday and Saturday, with a mix of rain and snow showers sticking around Southern Colorado. Sunday will be dry before another blast of rain and snow follow later on Monday.
