A cold front will be moving across eastern Colorado Friday, bringing much cooler temperatures to the eastern plains as the day progresses.

High temperatures for the northeast quarter of the state will largely remain below freezing. Julesburg will only reach the mid-teens while the Sterling and Fort Morgan area will be slightly warmer. Further south, the highs in Limon and Eads will be in the 30s before falling off as the front spreads to the south and west. Springfield and areas further west can expect to reach the 50s, while Trinidad will see 60 for a time.
