As the system pushes east of the Divide, strong northwest winds
will remain overhead and allow snow showers to persist over the
northern and central Colorado mountain ranges through Monday.
Otherwise, very cold and dry air will settle across the remainder
of the forecast area.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
