A cold front pushing into Colorado today will bring falling temperatures and a chance of snow for the Vail area. Accumulations are expected to be light, however, with anywhere from a trace to 2 inches possible.

Thursday’s high temperature in Vail will reach only 43 degrees, a sharp contrast from the mild weather of the past week. Thursday’s overnight low will drop all the way to 15 degrees. It will remain cool Friday, when the daytime high will top out at 36 degrees.

The storm hitting the state today will impact areas east of the Continental Divide more so than west. That means the Front Range foothills could see anywhere from 3 to 6 inches by late Thursday night, according to meteorologist Joel Gratz of OpenSnow.com.

Eagle County will see mostly sunny skies Friday and through the weekend. The next chance of snow arrives Halloween.
