DENVER — FORECAST BY: Meteorologist Laurann Robinson
TODAY AT A GLANCE: Another cold front moves into the area Sunday, bringing colder temperatures and more rain chances for Mother's Day. Expect cloudy skies and highs maxing out in the low 50s. Rain showers start off spotty early in the day, then gradually become more widespread across the Front Range, eventually spreading into parts of the Eastern Plains. Foothills and mountain areas could see snow flurries or a rain/snow mix.
Another Red Flag Warning will be in effect for southern valley areas, from 11 a.m. until 8 p.m. These areas should watch for increased fire danger.
Rain showers continue overnight, ramping up by Monday morning. Rainfall could be heavy at times. Overnight lows in the upper 30s.
The soggy, gray skies stick around for Monday. We could see rain mixing with snow as cold air arrives late Monday into Tuesday morning. Highs won't make it out of the mid to upper 40s early next week.
A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the central and northern mountain ranges for Monday afternoon through Tuesday morning. These areas could see 8-14 inches of snowfall.
Warmer, drier weather returns Thursday and continues into the start of next weekend.
