A fast moving disturbance is likely to spin up as it moves through eastern Colorado and into Kansas this evening. Showery precipitation, maybe a thundershower, will probably move into the area this evening. Precipitation will be mainly snow in the mountains (1-3 inches in Nederland and Estes), and mainly rain in the lower elevations (below 7000 feet). Where the precipitation lasts a little longer in the lower elevations the chance for it to change to snow is greater. There is about a 50-50 chance for some light accumulation of wet snow in the southeastern suburbs of Denver and at DIA where the precip will probably last longer than on the west side. For most of Denver-Boulder and Fort Collins, the chance for any measurable snow is less than 20%.
The weekend should be mainly dry with near seasonable temperatures. Then by Tuesday and Wednesday we are likely to get a few days of afternoon temperatures at least 10 degree above average (mid to upper 60s in Denver-Boulder).
