A fast moving storm system and cold front this afternoon will end the mild weather and bring some mountain snow, and some areas of rain changing to snow for the Front Range late this afternoon and evening.
For the Front Range foothills and plains it will be similar to the storm Thursday evening– brief but with some pockets of heavy precipitation and thunder. The difference is that this time it will be a few degrees colder, so in areas with the heavier precipitation the rain will probably change to snow and accumulate quickly before ending. Totals are likely to range from little or nothing in some areas to several inches that comes down fast in others. Watch for rapidly changing conditions.
After a cold start to the week, more springlike weather should begin working its way back on Tuesday in time for the equinox.
