Rain, possible snow on its way to Greeley

Staff reports

The April showers might be on their way a little early this year.

Rain showers and possible snow are forecast to Greeley and Weld County Tuesday morning.

The National Weather Service in Boulder issued a hazardous weather outlook for Weld, among several other counties in northeastern and north central Colorado. There will be rain Tuesday mainly after 9 a.m., and wind gusts could reach up to 20 mph. The weather service report stated the chance of precipitation will be at 80 percent.

"A few inches of wet snow will be possible by the morning as the freezing level drops with cooler air moving in," the National Weather Service report stated.

The cloudy weather likely will stick around through Thursday, when the warm and sunny weather will return. But it won't stick around for too long.

"Dry and warmer conditions should return to the area on Thursday with a passing high pressure ridge," the National Weather Service reported, "then another potentially stronger and colder Pacific storm system may produce significant precipitation, mainly in the form of snow beginning late Friday and lasting through Saturday night."
