A low pressure system moving over Colorado Wednesday will be accompanied by a temperature drop off from Tuesday's highs.

Highs will be in the 50s Wednesday and Thursday - closer to seasonal norms - with generally dry conditions across the plains while mountain areas may see some snow. Overall, little help for drought conditions can be expected during the coming days.

Another hint of spring is in store for the weekend after a slightly cooler start Friday.

High temperatures will be in the 40s over most of the eastern plains of Colorado Friday, though La Junta and Otero county may reach 50. Light overnight snow will mostly dissipate by early morning, with clouds lingering later into the morning. Look for wind gusts around 30 miles per hour continuing through the day into Friday night.
