A storm system is moving into Southern Colorado. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to wet snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, as temps will be coldest here. So then, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning. Updated snowfall forecast graphics can be found by clicking the Breaking Weather Alert tab to the left.
