Detailed Forecast

Wednesday: The next storm system will move over the area this afternoon.  Rain/snow showers will begin during the afternoon, continuing into the night/Thursday morning with accumulating snow likely on the higher terrain, some of it could again be heavy.  Highs in the 40s and 50s for most and falling during the afternoon.

Tonight:  Rain for the lower elevations, with snow across the high country overnight.  Several inches of accumulations will be possible around Teller County and across the Wets and Sangre De Cristo mountains (these two ranges should have the highest snow accumulations with this storm).  It is over the higher terrain where slushy and slippery spots will develop overnight, we'll be tracking road conditions closely - but it is a good idea for those traveling through the mountains, over the Palmer Divide or around the Pikes Peak Region tomorrow morning to plan on leaving a few minutes early.  Lows tonight will drop into the 20s.

Extended:  Temperatures may only hover in the 30s and 40s through much of Thursday.  Warmer again through the end of the work week.  Temperatures should return to near seasonal averages for the weekend, but there may exist enough instability for spotty afternoon showers (perhaps accompanied by a little thunder) to develop.  We are not expecting a weekend washout by any means, but even spotty showers will tend to cool the air noticeably at times, so be prepared with a coat nearby.  Warmer and dry early next week.
