Since the weather won’t be too exciting, the change to Daylight Saving Time might be the most noticeable thing this weekend, and quite easy to forecast.
But there is some change in the weather on the way. A Pacific cold front will sweep through the state late tonight and Saturday bringing localized areas of snow to some of the high passes and mountains, mainly north of I-70. For the Front Range foothills and plains there is very little chance for precipitation with the front, but there may be a period of gusty northwest winds. Afternoon temperatures are likely to be about 10-15 degrees cooler than today, which still isn’t too bad. The dry weather should continue into Sunday. A storm passing south of the state on Sunday may bring some high elevation snow to the San Juans and Sangre de Cristos, but nothing major.
