No precipitation is expected Friday, according to Sanders.

Heading into Saturday, residents can anticipate more sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures with a high of 44 and a low of 30 degrees.

“It looks like pretty dry conditions,” Sanders said of Saturday’s forecast. “Early Sunday morning we could have some isolated to scattered snow showers developing.”

Current models projected a few inches of snow falling Sunday with the possibility of precipitation extending into Monday in Glenwood Springs.

Sunday had a projected high near 46 and a low of 28 degrees.
