A Pacific storm will push a cold front into Southern Colorado by Tuesday afternoon. Rain and thunderstorms will be possible through Tuesday evening, with snow above 7,000 feet. It's possible that some snow could mix in lower than that during the overnight hours, but we shouldn't see any accumulation in the Plains. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible on Wednesday before the storm moves out and we warm back up during the final few days of April.
