A slow-moving closed low-pressure system is currently moving from southern Arizona towards New Mexico this morning. Moisture is wrapping around this system and making it's way into southern Colorado. Today will bring mostly scattered showers with up to 4 inches of new snow above 10,000 feet, favoring the east side of the Sangre de Cristo range. Daytime highs will climbs into the low to mid 40s for most locations. Expect afternoon clouds and thunderstorms to increase for the Central and Southern Mountains by this afternoon. We see some clearing on Tuesday night as the last lingering showers associated with this system exit the Southern Mountains. Temperatures drop to around 30 degrees at 11,000 feet. Wednesday brings weak northwest flow, warming temperatures, and more sunshine. We will see some scattered afternoon showers with little to no new accumulation.
High-pressure and drier conditions arrive for Wednesday night and into Thursday.
