If you’ve been hoping for some warmer weather in Colorado, you might be in luck. This weekend, warmer temperatures are expected to move through the state, with snow eventually dropping at higher altitudes come Sunday.

In the Front Range, Colorado Springs weather is expected to peak in the high-50s on Saturday. Denver weather will likely peak on Friday with a sunny high of 57 degrees.

On the Western Slope, look for colder temperatures, with Grand Junction’s weekend high of 38 degree coming on a partly cloudy Saturday.

In the mountains, expect a warm, sunny, and dry ski-day on Friday and Saturday with a snowstorm moving in on Saturday night, according to Joel Gratz of OpenSnow. Gratz expects this storm to drop 5 to 10 inches, favoring the mountains in the west and south. It will likely continue until Monday before another dry spell hits, though this one will likely only last for a few days.

If you’re looking for powder given a report like this, your best bet will probably be Wolf Creek, Silverton, and Purgatory – three southwest mountains sure to please. Telluride and Steamboat also fall in the region that’s expected to get the most snow.
