Weekend: Some snow in mountains; Front Range foothills and plains dry, but cooler Sunday

12:30 PM MDT, Friday, November 3, 2017

Front Range foothills and eastern plains

Dry weather with unseasonably warm weather is expected Saturday along with some areas of gusty winds. Mainly dry weather should continue behind a cold front Sunday and temperatures will likely be closer to seasonal norms (high of mid-upper 50s in the urban corridor). There may be some areas of clouds Sunday but there is very little chance for precipitation. The next chance for precipitation is on Tuesday, but that will probably be minor if there is any at all.

Mountains

Areas of snow are likely in the higher mountains beginning Saturday and lasting into Sunday. There will likely be some areas with more than 6 inches near and west of the higher ridges, including some high passes. There could also be a few rain or snow showers in the western valleys.

Daylight Saving Time ends

The clocks go back an hour Sunday morning, so you get an extra hour in your weekend!

    Thanks so much. We’re at 8,600 feet along Peak to Peak north of Ward. Do you consider this to be “Front Range Foothills” or “Mountains?”

    Stan- I was afraid someone would ask me that. 🙂 That’s pretty much where it stops being foothills. As for this weekend I think you will see some snow, but heavier closer to the divide as well as west of the divide since wind will be mainly from the west. -Matt
