winds will accompany a cold front that will spread across the
northeast plains after midnight.

A dry southwesterly flow aloft will be over the region today,
ahead of a fast moving Pacific trough that will move into
Colorado tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...Saturday through Thursday

Mountain snow will end by sunrise Saturday morning. Saturday will
be cooler and windy across the area, the strongest winds will be
found across the eastern plains and along the Wyoming border. 40

The beginning of the week will return to dry and warm conditions.
The next chance for cold temperatures and rain or snow will come
Thursday as a system quickly moves across the state.
