From The Denver Post (Joey Bunch):

Most of the state should see sunny, warm weather this week. Precipitation was expected to cross the northern and central mountains Sunday night, with up to 3 inches of snow possible at higher locations, mostly above timberline, with light rain in the valleys, forecasters said. Durango, Aspen and Steamboat Springs are expected to see highs near 50 each day with no snow in the forecast through next weekend, according to the western Colorado forecast. That’s not good news for the state’s ski industry or others affected by Colorado’s ongoing severe drought. Statewide snowpack as of Thursday was 57 percent of the 30-year average for the date.
