The first sign of change arrives late on Friday, with a few snow showers possible across Teller County. A round of light snow and mixed precipitation moves in on Saturday followed by the potential of a heftier snow event on Sunday.

Along with the snow, temperatures will be much colder from this weekend into early next week.
