Kristen’s Wednesday Afternoon Forecast

Active weather pattern settles in

WEDNESDAY: A relatively quiet day with a mix of sun and clouds seen area-wide … but changes move in by this evening. As a cold front moves into the state from the northeast and a disturbance passes to our north, snow showers will develop over portions of the Northern Mountains and Northeast Plains as early as late afternoon. The coverage and intensity of these snow showers will grow and expand overnight.

AFTERNOON HIGHS:
— Southern Colorado: upper 30s & low 40s
— Northwest Plateau: upper 40s to low 50s
— Southwest: mid-50s to mid-60s
— Southeast: mid-50s to low 60s
— Northeast: low 40s to low 50s
— Northern Mountains: low 30s to low 40s
— East Mountains: mid-40s to low 50s
— Albuquerque-metro: mid- to upper 50s

THURSDAY: Snow showers will continue to increase in coverage over the Eastern Plains through the first part of Thursday. Significant accumulation is possible over the higher elevations – plan on giving yourself extra time for Thursday’s morning commute. A brief break in the wintry precipitation Thursday night will be followed by a much stronger storm system dropping in Friday into the weekend.

AFTERNOON HIGHS:
— Southern Colorado: low to mid-30s
— Northwest Plateau: low to mid-40s
