In typical Colorado fashion, we can now forget about the weather of the prior 48 hours because it’s warm again.

It’s going to be mostly sunny with a high near 62 today, according to the National Weather Service.  Much like yesterday, there will be light wind from 5 to 8 mph.

Later in the week, we’re looking at a chance of showers on Tuesday afternoon and a chance of snow showers on Tuesday night. By Thursday, it should be sunny and 73. This weekend may hit the 80s.

In the mountains, light snow is expected to accumulate today and tonight, followed by another storm with a good chance of rain and snow starting Thursday.
