We're going to be mild and dry today ahead of a pretty cold and snowy day tomorrow. Despite cloud cover that will build throughout the day, we'll have enough down slope wind flow to keep temperatures in the 50s and 60s this afternoon. We'll be calm for most of this evening, but the winds will ramp up late tonight as a strong cold front slides in from Denver early tomorrow morning with a lot of wind.

A strong cold front blasts through late tonight and tomorrow morning, with snow to follow mostly in the afternoon and evening. Spring snow storms often come with "banded" snowfall, and that's what we'll see tomorrow.

We're going to see very cold air and strong, gusty winds rip through the region as a cold front pushes in late tonight/early Thursday morning. Flurries could follow up along and north of Monument Hill Thursday morning, but most of our snow will start to fall around and especially after lunch time.
Snowfall will be "banded" tomorrow, meaning there will be a lot of areas that see heavy snow, and people 5 miles away could see barely an inch. Snow will diminish Thursday night and we'll just be chilly but dry Friday.
Isolated showers are possible on Saturday afternoon.
