DENVER (CBS4) – Good Tuesday! A weak weather system will pass north Colorado today. It will cause a swathe of cloud cover across the state and the wind will pick up from time to time. Some places might see wind gusts of up to 20-30 mph during the afternoon.
A weak system is going to pass through our north today. It carries with it a band of cloud cover. A little wind will pick up this afternoon as we go. Wake up with us on CBS4 this morning. We are until 7 a.m. #COwx # 4wx @ CBS4Dom @ michelleCBS4 pic.twitter.com/u48avZ7TVE

It will be above normal for this time of year in terms of afternoon peaks again around Colorado. In Denver, we expect a peak in the lower 50s. We will mainly see 30s in the mountains with 40s in some valleys.
The next storm to hit Colorado is currently over the Pacific Ocean, just a little north of Hawaii. It will arrive in Colorado early Friday with much colder air and light mountain snow. We could even see some afternoon and evening flurries around Denver and on the Eastern Plains.
The Friday storm system will be on the move, arriving early in the morning and out of state late Friday evening. Because it moves so fast, it won’t have time to produce a lot of snow.
We would expect a few inches in the northern and central mountains with potential for dust in parts of the eastern plains. Conditions will start to clear up on Saturday even though it will be cold.
