A hint of rain returns to the forecast this week to potentially help further improve drought conditions.

Sunday starts off sunny for the eastern plains, with a high in the mid-40s before dropping to near 20 overnight.

Colorado's mountains will see another wind-driven snow event starting Sunday evening, continuing to Tuesday morning. Southern mountains could see ten to 20 additional inches of snow, and wind gusts to 55 miles-per-hour. Mountain passes are likely to be slick and snow-packed.

An upper level disturbance near the Four Corners area is expected to move east across the Colorado plains through the day Friday, bringing snow and rain showers to the area into the afternoon and evening hours.

Friday's high will reach to the upper 30s for Kiowa County. Snow is likely before 1:00 p.m. before changing to rain for a few hours. Snow returns for the late afternoon hours; however, accumulation is expected to be less than one inch - little help for ongoing drought conditions.

After more than a day of ice and snow, the National Weather Service converted a winter storm warning in Kiowa County to a winter weather advisory, which was then cancelled Monday morning.

A layer of ice accumulated Saturday night into Sunday as freezing rain fell in the area. Rain continued periodically until later in the afternoon before temperatures dropped and a layer of snow was added on top of the ice.
