Warm chinook winds overspread the Front Range and adjacent plains overnight ahead of the next cold front that is near Casper at 6 AM. There are clouds and snow along the higher peaks this morning. Some of those clouds are breaking off and moving east, so don’t be surprised by a few localized rain showers in the lower foothills and plains this morning.
The cold front should slip through Cheyenne in the late morning or midday and then move south through the Colorado Front Range Monday afternoon and early evening. A period of low clouds and some areas of snow is probable tonight and/or Tuesday morning. Accumulations are likely to be minor, a trace in most places and around an inch in other areas. In the mountains (mainly above treeline) around 6 inches is likely, locally more on the west side of the continental divide.
Midler weather should return Wednesday ahead of the next cold front late Friday or Saturday.
