Weather Discussion

Mostly clear skies tonight will allow night time temperatures to drop well below freezing. Tuesday begins with increasing clouds and winds as a strong cold front pushes south into Colorado. Westerly ridgetop winds will pick up by sunrise and get stronger though the day, mixing to lower elevations. Temperatures may drop rapidly behind the front. Skies will become mostly cloudy, and snow showers could develop in the evening. It looks like the best chance for heavy precipitation stays over the northeast plains, but most mountains may see a couple inches of snow before things dry up mid-day Tuesday.
