Change is in the air after really warm wonderful weather. A cool front pushes down just after noon on Wednesday and will cool us about 10-15 degrees by Thursday. Another wind shift allows things to warm again for Friday to 70F. Saturday starts off nice before a stronger cold front makes things cold for the evening and brings rain chances back. Sunday will dawn snowy and very cold. Monday will be cold with snow as well. The next week remains chilly with on and off precipitation. It won't be nice like this week was.
Spring has sprung. The next five days will be spring-time heaven. Take a walk. Around Thursday (as we have had the last 4 weeks) a system approaches. It has no real cold air associated with it this time and not that much moisture either. A small chance of rain will be in the forecast through next weekend and beyond. It is a quiet news day. Easter will dawn with temperatures above freezing, mostly clear skies and a very very low chance of a shower (as it looks now).
Clouds are building Wednesday PM as a trough and cold front approaches. This system will dominate our weather all of Thursday with cold air, wind, rain, then snow. Another chance of rain/snow passes Friday afternoon/evening then we warm up to very nice Spring-like levels through the weekend and on to the middle of next week.
A ripple in the upper level flow will kick off showers Monday afternoon with a few rumbles of thunder possible. We warm up and dry out wonderfully until a significant trough arrives Wednesday PM bringing rain back to the state. Cold air pours into the system on Thursday and another good hit of snow is possible Thursday into Thursday night. The weekend weather snaps temperatures back to 'warm' levels with dry conditions.
Thursday started cloudy and cool with one last shot of relative warmth in the afternoon. An evening cold front slides down the state bringing a chance in the weather. Rain chances start low in the evening and increase through the the night into the morning Friday. Rain is likely late morning through early evening. Temperatures will slowly drop later Friday allowing rainfall to change to snow for a while later in the evening Friday. Longmont should see a coating to maybe 1 inch. Things clear out and warm for the weekend. Another chance of showers returns Monday followed by real spring like warmth.
Very spring-like weather is here. A ripple in the upper level flow will bring in a chance of rain showers Monday afternoon. We warm up to the 60'sF until a deeper trough passes Thursday/Friday giving us a better chance of rain (and maybe a brief shot of overnight snow). Warmness and niceness settles in right after that. Is winter gone for good!? (Probably not.)
The snow departs and we enter an extended mild period of quiet weather. There is a chance of some rain/snow Wednesday PM into Thursday. That's all I have to say about that.
We have one more warm (very warm) and beautiful day Wednesday. Get out and take a walk! Showers move in Wednesday night (with some thunder?), become pretty heavy Thursday morning, then change to snow midday Thursday with snow lasting through Friday afternoon. We warm up and dry out through the weekend and into next week.

With a ridge now over the state, we warm up a lot through Wednesday. A wobbling cut-off upper level low will finally head for Colorado bringing in rain chances Tuesday, thunder storm chances Wednesday, and rain changing to some snow Thursday night. There is not much winter visible on the horizon.
Update 3/13 9:30am: Next Storm/Next Snow Forecast Discussion from the Cherrywood Observatory –March 11-13,...
Our weather is about to be dictated by a persistent semi-cutoff low that will wobble around the southwestern U.S. for the foreseeable future. The first piece of the low to eject will roll over Colorado Friday with a blob of moisture but not much cold air. We might see early morning snow at the start of the precipitation and some snow at the end. Temperatures are pretty mild for snow. The previous forecast had very cold and snowy conditions beginning Tuesday next week. It now looks like it will still be very moist but much warmer. More on that later!
