A return to more typical spring weather is expected for eastern Colorado in the coming week after a late-season storm brought wet snow and rain to the state last week.
Colorado experienced a mix of continued improving drought conditions for the north central part of the state, while abnormally dry conditions expanded in western Colorado.
The late-season storm system that brought heavy, wet snow to portions of western Colorado and the mountains, along with showers and thunderstorms to the eastern Colorado, will continue moving out of the state Friday.
Cooler weather, accompanied by rain for eastern Colorado and a late-season snow storm for the western half of the state, will move in later Wednesday.
A weekend of warmer, dry weather will extend into the coming week; however, showers are possible later.
Results could aid weather forecasters and emergency managers
Researchers have developed the first numerical polarimetric radar simulator to study and characterize the scattering of debris particles in tornadoes.
Caribbean ocean temperatures preserved in 5-million-year-old corals provide clues
Scientists are trying to predict the future behavior of El Nino -- the formation of warmer-than-usual ocean waters in the equatorial Pacific -- by looking back in time.
The journal Geology published new findings suggesting that 5 million years ago, El Nino occurred with about the same frequency as it does today.
After another day of widespread rain and flooding across southeast Colorado, an upper ridge begins moving east across the state to set the stage for a warm and dry weekend.
