Sunshine this week, snow the next!

It will practically be t-shirt weather this weekend in Colorado, with highs near the 80s, but don't put away those winter coats just yet. April snow showers could sneak into Colorado early next week on Tuesday and Wednesday (with a chance of snow).

Colorado will warm back up for the first few days of April, feeling a lot more like spring. Temperatures are set to heat up over the next few days, with highs in the 70s along the Front Range and plains, upper 60s in the mountain valleys, and 50s in the mountains by Friday. 

"A warming trend is expected during the second half of the work week," the  National Weather Service said in a tweet on Wednesday. "Clear skies and quiet weather look to dominate through the end of the week."

Another dose of spring snow could be headed to parts of Colorado early next week, but it's too early to say how much snow could fall. According to Joel Gratz of OpenSnow, snow showers may return to the forecast as temperatures start to cool down sometime around Tuesday and Wednesday, April 6-7.

While it's still a little too early to determine how much snow will accumulate and where, the forecast is sure to solidify as the weather approaches.
