DENVER (CBS4) – Our big blizzard maker is pushing into the mid-west away from the Rockies. Winds behind the storm have been gusty from the north-northeast all day Saturday.
Now as the storm continues on its eastward trek winds will slowly weaken into Saturday night. There will be a little push of moisture Saturday night that creates a few light snow showers in the northern mountains. Accumulations will be on the light side.
High pressure will begin to move into the region on Sunday bringing with it a warming forecast through Monday. As the high moves closer to our state on Monday winds will ramp up again. These winds will be warm Chinook winds that boost eastern plains temperatures into the 70s and 80s to start the week.
A cold front will swing through on Tuesday with more mountain snow and a few rain showers for the lower elevations.
