Extended Outlook:
Snow and colder air move in Sunday morning. Because this storm is originating pretty far south it will be a warmer and wetter storm. Temperatures will likely stay in the 30s tomorrow, many spots above freezing. Precipitation may start as rain along in the plains and southern I-25 corridor. This will likely transition to snow at some point, but will be hard to accumulate. It's in the mountains, mountain valleys, and El Paso county that we will likely see all snow. Another factor in this storm will be the strong winds. Expect gusts possible in the 40 mph range tomorrow, which will lead to reduced visibility in areas that are seeing active snowfall.
