in the backyard, temperatures cooling off into the teens. we are down to 18 and it is looking like a cool unsettled weekend ahead. one to the north and south. and if you are traveling in the east, it will be a mess out there as well. heavy rain and a bit of snow. for us, we are looking at the northwesterly flow building into the high country and the western slope looking at the snowfall continuing overnight into tomorrow as another disturbance rolls through and doesn't bring the metro area that much snow. we have been watching a couple of bands in loveland. shifting out in morgan county, washington county. all the way south to flagler. here in the denver area, just too dry to get any snow on the surface. once you move up in elevation along i-70, that is where you will find a little more of the snow.
