The pattern this weekend favors increasing chance for precipitation, peaking Sunday into early Monday. But there should be pleasant dry periods too, especially early to mid day on Saturday.
Scattered showers and thundershowers are likely late this afternoon and evening and again late Saturday, but not everyone is likely to get wet. Precipitation should be in the form of rain all the way up to around 9000 feet.
On Sunday a storm system and cooler weather is expected to have impacts statewide (including snow on the higher passes and mountain areas). For the Front Range region, expect damp weather all day Sunday although it appears that it could be late in the day when it is most likely. Rain is expected in the Colorado Springs-Denver-Boulder-Fort Collins area, and most likely Cheyenne too. Even Nederland should start as rain, but snow levels will probably drop to around 6500 or 7000 feet Sunday night. Significant accumulation of wet snow (more than 6 inches) will probably be mainly in areas around 9000 feet and higher.
