Extended Outlook: Dry skies will continue through Wednesday, with temperatures cooling a good 4-8 degrees behind Tuesday night's cold front. A new system moves into Colorado on Thursday, with heavy mountain snow back in the forecast late this week. Some light snow flurries or sprinkles will be possible east of the mountains Thursday night to Friday, but confidence for now remains low as this late week storm should mostly be a mountain snow-maker.
