Extended outlook forecast:
Sunday will be partly cloudy and a bit cooler. We are watching our next storm arrive to southern Colorado on Sunday. There will be some snow showers in the mountains starting in the late morning and continuing off and on during the day. The plains and I-25 will be dry initially. Then, a blustery cold front will blow in during the late afternoon and evening bringing rain and thunderstorms initially, and then a transition to snow overnight.

Snow will last into Monday morning and then come to an end in the plains in the late morning or early afternoon, and linger in the mountains until Tuesday. The Monday morning commute will be the most impacted by snow and ice on the roads.
