Forecast news: Unsettled weather over southern Colorado today #codrought #cowx

From the National Weather Service Pueblo Office:

An upper level disturbance is expected to drop southward through Colorado today…keeping the weather picture unsettled for the end of the weekend. Snow is expected to develop in the afternoon and through the evening over much of the region, with the best chances for precipitation expected over the eastern mountains and along the I-25 corridor. Temperatures will stay well below average across the viewing area, with generally 20s to mid 30s expected over most areas.

From the National Weather Service Grand Junction office:

Very cold temperatures will repeat tonight. Several record lows were set this morning and more of the same is expected Monday morning. Except for isolated showers over northern Colorado and Utah through Wednesday, high pressure will keep conditions dry. Clouds will start increasing again Thursday as the next Pacific storm develops off the west coast. This storm should bring precipitation to the western U.S. late Easter weekend.

From The Denver Post (Tom McGhee):

An early spring snowfall that dumped between 8 and 12 inches on the metro area left streets and roads snow-packed and icy on Sunday and with cold weather on tap for the first half of the week it could be a while before some of the snow melts.
