Temperatures across Colorado will be on a rollercoaster over the coming days as cooler air periodically moves across the state.

Eastern Plains

Temperatures in the mid- to upper 50s are expected across much of eastern Colorado Friday into Saturday. Closer to the northern foothills, winds will gust as high as 50 to 60 miles per hour until early afternoon, while wind across the plains will be light.

A cold front will begin to drop across northeast Colorado later Saturday morning, dropping the daytime highs into the 30s by Sunday. Freezing drizzle is a possibility overnight Saturday.

By Monday, look for temperatures to rebound into the low 50s.

Later in the coming week, temperatures are expected to take another dip, with some potential for snow Wednesday night into Thursday.

West Slope

Friday's high temperatures will be relatively cool, though still above seasonal norms. A system approaching from the west is expected to move toward the region Saturday, moderating temperatures just slightly for the weekend. Snow is possible in the higher elevations Sunday, particularly in the San Juan Mountains, as the system begins a track toward the eastern plains.

Another system will move into the area by mid-week bringing some potential for rain and snow including to lower elevations.
