Colorado.

.DAY ONE…Today and Tonight

Dry conditions can be expected for today and tonight with
northwest winds gusting to 40 mph over the higher mountain areas.
This may temporarily restrict visibility near the passes and
higher ridge areas due to blowing snow. Across the lower
elevations, below normal temperatures and light winds can be
expected through the evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN…Wednesday through Monday

A weak weather system will bring light snow to the north-central
mountains and adjacent plains on Wednesday and Wednesday night.
Mountain areas will see 2 to 4 inches of new snow while the plains
receive less than an inch. Further east on the plains, a strong
cold front will bring gusty north winds with gusts up to 45 mph
through the afternoon. Mountain areas may see lingering snow
showers into Thursday while the plains remain dry with less wind.

Later in the week, a series of weak weather systems will bring
periods of snow to the mountains from Friday night through the
weekend. Mostly dry conditions are expected across the plains
from Friday through Sunday.
