A fast moving cold front brought strong winds, some rain to the plains and snow for the high country. The front is part of the same storm system that caused all of the severe weather along the West Coast Sunday and Monday. This same system will produce powerful thunderstorms over the central plains tonight and early Wednesday.

In Colorado, some light rain can be expected tonight over the northeast plains, a few more inches of snow in the mountains and strong, gusty winds for much of the state.

Lows by morning will be in the 20s in the mountains and in the low to mid-30s for Denver and the eastern plains. Some upper 30s to low 40s can be expected across southeastern Colorado.

By Wednesday, skies clear, winds remain gusty and temperatures will be more seasonal. Highs will be 55 to 60 degrees for lower elevations and in the middle 30s to low 40s in the mountains.

Thursday will be sunny, less winds and a little warmer with highs in the 40s in the mountains and upper 50s to middle 60s on the plains.

An overall dry and pleasant weather pattern looks to return through the end of the week with upper 60s and low 70s returning Friday. Saturday will stay dry and mild with highs in the 60s for lower elevations and 40s to low 50s in the mountains.

A new storm system will begin to impact Colorado on Sunday with clouds, cooler temperatures and a chance for some light showers in the afternoon and evening - could be cool and damp for Trick or Treat!
