A mild three-day weekend is underway and although there will be a cool front late Sunday, other than some gusty winds behind the front it is not expected to turn much colder. Some precipitation (snow mountains, rain valleys) is likely in western Colorado late Sunday and Sunday night, but a big storm is not expected. For the Front Range lower foothills and plains there is a small chance of a brief showery period with the front Sunday evening and even a slight chance for a rumble of thunder (that would be quite unusual for February if it does happen). Monday should be a bit cooler, but still milder than average, and maybe some gusty winds. Abnormally warm weather is likely Tuesday and Wednesday.
Will winter return?
Not in the next four days. There is increasingly consistent indications that more wintry weather may make a comeback after midweek.
