Cooler and wetter weekend (with lulls in the rain activity)

Weather Summary: There is a weather lull expected this evening for many of the lower elevations, but later tonight an increase in the rainy pattern is expected and this will lead the way to a wet start Saturday. Another lull is anticipated during Saturday afternoon and an approaching cold front from the PACNW will remain on track to pass through late Saturday night. This will be the enhancer for the heavier rainfall into Sunday morning. Cooler air will follow for Sunday with the mountains above 10,000 feet and along the Divide expecting up to of 15" of new snow. The only resorts still open are A-Basin, Loveland and Winter Park... so... just saying, drive safely over the passes as roads at those elevations will be slushy/wet/snow packed. High pressure builds in Tuesday and beyond for a nice stretch of warmer and drier conditions. The potential temperature jump looks to be into the upper 70s for the late week period of next.
