Rusty's Forecast - Cold & windy with snow much of the day

Weather Authority: Warmer today, wet and cooler for the weekend

Central AL Forecast: Nice, warm afternoons ahead of rain and storms this weekend

As of now the snow looks like it will move into the Monument/county line area a little sooner than expected. With the ground relatively saturated from spring rain showers, some flooding is possible around Mid-Michigan - especially in low-lying areas. There is potential for snowfall next Wednesday, but Carletta said high temperatures and the strength of the sun will mean the snow melts quickly. This storm will continue to produce snow in the region through Sunday evening. "Around 1" is expected from North Academy and up but snow totals will generally go up the closer you live to Monument.

Saturday Night Sleet or Freezing Rain? However, things will dry out as we head into next weekend and temperatures will likely recover to near even above average.

CANON CITY: High - 67; Low - 33.

Along with the chance for heavy precipitation, we'll see powerful winds as well this weekend with northeast winds gusting to 40 miles per hour on Saturday and up to 35 miles per hour out of the north on Sunday.

WOODLAND PARK: High - 67; Low - 33. Many areas saw winds between 40 and 50 miles per hour.

Early Saturday morning will be quite mild with most spots in the 50s.

TRI-LAKES: High - 67; Low - 33.

Meanwhile, a strong southerly wind and low relative humidity create another unsafe fire scenario across South Central Kansas. In higher elevations there could be some flurries.

Big changes have arrived in KAKEland as a strong area of low pressure tracks across the Central Plains. Both today and tomorrow will be rain free and mostly sunny. Another few inches are possible from Walsenburg down to Trinidad and west into the surrounding higher terrain.

The front will bring an overcast sky and a few light showers in addition to the much cooler air tonight.

Southerly winds kick in to help warm us right up on Saturday.

EXTENDED FORECAST DETAILS: A lingering shower or storm is possible very early Monday but overall expect a much drier and cooler pattern to commence.
