.DISCUSSION...Today and tonight...A storm system will organize near
the Four Corners area late this afternoon and evening. A cold front
will push across the plains around mid day, with much colder
temperatures, gusty northeast winds, and high humidities spreading
over the forecast area. Showers will develop and increase in coverage
behind the front, turning to snow on the plains late this afternoon
and evening.

LONG TERM DISCUSSION...Saturday through Tuesday...The upper level
low pressure system will be moving across northern New Mexico on
Saturday with north to northeasterly flow over the northeast Colorado
plains. Snow will be falling across most of the forecast area
Saturday morning. The Spring snowstorm will be moving out of the
region Saturday afternoon as a weak upper ridge builds in from the
west. For Sunday through Tuesday, moist and unsettled northwest flow
aloft will continue over Colorado with a chance of showers each day
and temperatures remaining cooler than normal.
