The next round of winter weather is expected in southeast Colorado Sunday, with snow developing from west to east as an upper level low pressure system continues to move through the region.

The system is expected to reach the Four Corners area by 5:00 a.m. Sunday and continue to move along the Colorado-New Mexico border throughout the day. Weather models are in generally good agreement about the track of the storm; however, snow amounts are still in question.

The weather just keeps getting better throughout the weekend, with sunshine and 60 degrees by Sunday afternoon.

Scattered snow showers are possible from Monday into Tuesday, with the highest chance at 50 percent Monday night and temperatures dropping into the teens.

Wednesday night is looking like the coldest, with clear skies and temperatures near 10 degrees.

We will be on the rebound from February 21 through 24, with a nice warming trend to between 55 and 60 degrees during the day.

We are going to have a fantastic weekend and then a major change in our weather pattern is coming early in the week. 

We can enjoy sunshine and mild temperatures Sunday, with highs ranging from the mid-60s to the mid-70s. You gotta love it!

Next, there's something for snow lovers. A major cold front will sweep in here Sunday night and drop the temperature 50 degrees from the high Sunday afternoon to the low Sunday night.

Colder weather and snow take over for Monday into Tuesday, and there will be blowing snow at times reducing visibility.
