KUSA - A partly cloudy day went to mostly cloudy with the early arrival of a cold front dropping from the northeast.
A cold front that was supposed to arrive Saturday afternoon has arrived earlier and brought a batch of snow and rain to north and northeastern Colorado. There is a chance we could see some showers here in the metro area this afternoon with no big concern for accumulation or weather related problems on our roads. A winter weather advisory has expired for the mountains which means that snow is gradually decreasing. Roads will continue to be dangerous with ice and blowing snow.
High temperatures for today were forecast in the 50s, and that still holds true but it happened early this morning. With the arrival of the cool batch of air, temperatures have dropped into the 30s. You factor in the wind and you don't want to be without a jacket outdoors.
A high wind warning will expire at noon, but even then winds will be pretty strong along the foothills through early this evening. Last night we had a peak wind gust of 87 mph in Boulder County. Tomorrow afternoon and evening winds will pick up again ahead of another chance for snow in the mountains. Sunday's temps will be in the upper 50s.
