I hope this is not a repeat of last year with a cold and wet spring that never seemed to end.
although the grass and plants like it :)

A Winter Storm Watch goes into effect on Friday night for most of the eastern plains and southern Front Range Mountains, including the Palmer Divide. Portions of Douglas, Elbert, Adams and Arapahoe counties will also be under the watch. Eight to 16 inches of snow could be possible by early Saturday morning for these regions. Heavy snow and gusty winds could create blizzard-like conditions across the eastern plains.

Sunday things move out and wonderfully warm conditions move in behind the quick moving storm, mid 50s for Sunday and clear skies.

Only a watch so far folks and it's going to be 70 degrees by next Tuesday.
