A high wind warning has been issued for El Paso, Crowley, Otero, Kiowa, Bent, Prowers, Baca and eastern Las Animas Counties from 9 am to 7 pm today. There will be a mix of rain and snow showers this afternoon, although this will be more likely in the mountains than on the plains. Local snowfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches will be possible in the mountains today with little or no snow accumulation expected across the lower elevations. Early gardens may need to be protected for the next few nights, due to the cooler temperatures. (Please visit http://weather.gov/pub for more information.)

Windy and unseasonably cold weather is in store for southern Colorado over the next few days. It seems just as we're trying to step forward into spring, we've fallen a few steps backward into winter. Typical for Colorado in April. Tuesday will be windy and cold across most of southern Colorado. There will be a mix of rain and snow showers Tuesday afternoon, although this will be more likely in the mountains than on the plains. Local snowfall amounts of 1 to 3 inches will be possible in the mountains Tuesday with little or no snow accumulation expected across the lower elevations. If you already have tender spring plants that are out on their own, you probably should protect them from the cold for the next few nights.

A large area of low pressure will move across Colorado tonight and into Nebraska Sunday afternoon into Monday, before moving southeast into Missouri on Tuesday. This will help to usher in an extended period of unsettled weather across the state, with breezy to windy conditions expected, along with a chance for precipitation through the middle of the upcoming work week. The best chances for precipitation are expected over the mountains tonight, with significant snowfall possible along the Continental Divide, and lighter amounts over the eastern mountains. The chances for precipitation will gradually work into the eastern plains late tonight into Sunday, with the chances for precipitation then gradually diminishing Sunday afternoon and evening as the low moves into Nebraska. Isolated to widely scattered rain and snow showers will then be possible each day across the region to start off the work week, as a series of weak upper level impulses move south around the back ! side of this low, and across Colorado. Area temperatures will be noticeably cooler over the next several days, as highs drop below average over most areas. Highs on Sunday will likely only top out in the 50s to low 60s over the eastern plains and 30s to low 50s across the high country.

The best chance for precipitation across the plains will be Sunday, main north of highway 50 and across the Palmer Divide.

Strong gusty winds and snow will be possible across the mountains and possibly over the Palmer Divide with this system on Sunday, possibly impacting travel across the mountain passes and over Monument Hill and Interstate 25. Isolated to widely scattered showers were then expected into mid week as the low moves very slowly across the central plains states, sending weak upper level impulses on the back side of the low ! southward across Colorado. With gusty winds and lack of moisture expected over the eastern plains on Saturday, the fire danger will increase once again during the afternoon hours. For the latest information on this Red Flag Warning, please visit our web page at weather.gov/pub. Area temperatures will remain above average on Saturday, as highs warm into the 70s to mid 80s across the eastern plains, and into the 50s and 60s over the high country.
