Happy Halloween!  Dry, clear weather for Trick-or-Treaters tonight with temps mainly in the 50s.
Expect lots of sunshine today with highs around 60.
The Mountains can expect sunshine with temps in the 50s.  Winds above Treeline stay under 35mph but increase to 40mph tonight and to 60mph Sunday morning.  Snow develops in the Mountains on Sunday and trickles into Monday.  I’m forecasting up to a Foot of new snow in the San Juans and West Elks on Sunday-Monday, with 6-7″ at Loveland Ski Area, Steamboat, and Winter Park.
That same storm system rolls through the Front Range as a cold front on Sunday cooling us down and adding cloud cover.  We could see a rain/snow shower on Sunday with our best chance of snow on Monday morning into the mid-day.  I think we could see 1/2″ of accumulation in Denver on the grassy areas and trees on Monday.  1-2″ across the Palmer Divide and up to 4 inches in the Foothills.  Stay tuned!

Don’t forget the time change this weekend.  We fall back one hour Saturday night.  It is also a great time to change the batteries in your smoke detectors.
