On Tuesday mild weather prevailed in the Colorado Front Range Foothills communities. Temperatures soared into the 50s F. 56 F was my official high with temperatures hovering around 40 F Tuesday evening.
We have one more day of mild weather with highs on Wednesday expected to top out once again in the 50s F. Colder air will begin to settled into Northern Colorado late Wednesday night as a cold front sags southward across the state. Temperatures will drop back into the upper 20s F by Thursday morning here in Ned, but it should remain dry.
Much colder weather returns with temperatures staying in the low to mid 20s F during the day. Upslope flow will become better established as the day progresses. With this will come clouds and some fog especially during the afternoon and evening hours. We should see some light snow by Thursday evening, and periods of snow will continue through the night with lows around 15 F.
The light snow and cold will continue. Overall, this appears to be a weak upslope weather event with marginal forcing and moisture. From Thursday night through Saturday morning we could see anywhere from 2 to 4 inches of snow. Obviously, this is not a heavy, hitting major snowfall. but any moisture is welcome, especially since fire restrictions have now been dropped in Boulder County.
Temperatures Friday and through much of the weekend will be cold with highs only in the 20s F and lows in the 10-15 F. range. Sunshine will return on Saturday and moreso on Sunday.
