Wet start to the weekend

Watches and Warnings: Winter weather advisories remain in effect for the central mountains with heavy snowfall expected. Anyone making travel plans be careful on roads, especially in the high country. Freeze Warnings are in effect for parts of the Grand Valley, and widespread below freezing temperatures are expected.

Tonight: Overcast skies with the chance for snow/rain through the night. Moisture has begun to taper off, so tonight could enter a lull compared to today. Temperatures will be close to freezing tonight, with many areas in the 20s.

Tomorrow: Mostly cloudy skies. Scattered rain/snow showers will persist on and off through the day tomorrow. Temperatures will be chilly again, reaching up to the 40s and 50s.

Extended: Low pressure that has been stalled over the four corners region continues to pull moisture from the south into Colorado. The central mountains have been taking the biggest hit from this spring storm and will continue to do so. A cold front swinging from the north tomorrow will give the low pressure the kick it needs to move eastward. As this system moves out, we will begin to clear out through Saturday night. Rain/snow are still possible through parts of the day Sunday. Northwest flow will take over to end the weekend, bringing the chance for scattered showers Sunday and Monday for the mountains. Tuesday appears to be one of the clearer and warmer days of the week before we enter another active trend. Temperatures will warm very slowly through mid-week.
