DENVER (CBS4) –
A cold front that rolled through on Monday night drastically dropped our temperatures and brought more wintery weather to Colorado. We were more than 30 degrees cooler for many areas of the Front Range and plains on Tuesday afternoon.
A mix of snow and rain on and off through the day on Tuesday, and that precipitation should mostly wrap up after 9:00 pm.
Overnight into Wednesday, expect some cloudy skies and breezy conditions.
Skies clear on Wednesday and we should have a gorgeous day with highs back to the low to mid 60s.
The warm up will be short lived thanks to another passing storm on Thursday. A chance for rain showers will also return on Thursday before sunny, dry, and warmer weather for Friday and Saturday.
In the mountains, plan on snow showers mainly east of Vail Pass through Tuesday night with up to 5 inches above 9,500 feet. Dry weather will return to the high country for Wednesday.
After that, warmer and sunny to end the week and start the weekend.
