Grab that sunscreen and get out to enjoy this beautiful day before we see the temperatures plunge next week. Warmer temps and light winds today will begin changing late this afternoon and this evening as a trough of low pressure starts sagging into Wyoming. This trough will allow cold arctic air to descend into Colorado tomorrow. Building clouds this evening will allow low temperatures to hold in the teens and begin to warm tomorrow morning before this cold air infiltrates into central Colorado later in the day as we see those temperatures drop. This cold front will bring low density snow to Colorado, favoring Northern Colorado on Monday. Then we’ll see our better chance of snow on Tuesday. Light snow showers will likely linger on Wednesday before a couple days of dryer weather later this week.
