Mountains forecast: Low: teens/20s; High: 30s/40s;
Partly cloudy in the mountain valleys with most of the active snow locked up in the Sangre De Cristos mountains and along the Continental Divide on Thursday. Snow will expand late Thursday night into Friday morning for the mountain valleys. Meanwhile, Thursday will be gusty with W wind from 10-20 mph gusting 30-40 mph.

Extended outlook forecast:
On Friday, there is a chance of snow showers all day in the mountains, with a quick burst possible along I-25 in the morning. There will be a break in the snow midday in the plains before snow spreads across the region on Friday night. Snow continues from the mountains to the plains on Saturday, coming to an end early Sunday morning. This storm is trending cold which means we will see snow and not a mix of rain and snow for the plains. Expect winter driving conditions region-wide from Friday night through Sunday morning.
