The big story will be the extremely cold temps on Sunday. High temps will only reach the lower teens with the wind chill factor making it feel below zero. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for the entire I-25 corridor through Sunday mid-morning.

Winter Storm Warnings have been posted for the mountains through Monday morning. Snowfall may exceed two feet in the mountains over the weekend as a series of storm systems pour in from the West Coast.
