Snow and Cold Return Saturday Afternoon and Night

Say goodbye to the nice and mild weather. Snow will develop around the Denver area late this afternoon and spread southward during the evening. While this doesn't look to be a huge storm, enough snow will fall to possibly complicate travel in some areas. Winds will also pick up and temperatures will fall sharply by late day. Bottomline, be prepared for potential challenging travel conditions and slick roads Saturday night through early Sunday morning.

Potential Accumulations:

1-3" - Downtown and Southern Colorado Springs, Falcon, Calhan, Walsenburg, Trinidad, Alamosa, Pueblo. Isolated higher amounts possible along the HWY 24 corridor, northeast of Colorado Springs.

3-5" - Northern Colorado Springs, Monument, Black Forest, Air Force Academy, Woodland Park, Cripple Creek and Canon City. Isolated higher amounts possible, especially far northwestern El Paso County and areas west of I-25.

3-6" - Beulah, Rye, Westcliffe, Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Isolated higher amounts possible in the higher terrain.

Dusting at best, for the Eastern Plains

If you have travel planned during this timeframe, be prepared for winter driving conditions and much colder weather. After seeing high temperatures in the 60's on Friday, this type of change may catch some folks by surprise. As I said, don't be caught off guard.
