A major spring storm that dumped 1-3 feet of snow along the eastern Rocky Mountains west of highway I-25 slopes through the day on Saturday will head far away to the east on Sunday. In its wake, warming high pressure will build quickly.

Strong sunshine and marked day-to-day rise in temperature will last through at least the first half of next week, leading to high temperatures well into the 70s. Thus, by the end of the day on Tuesday, there will simply be no snow to be seen east of the Rockies and little of that multi-foot snowpack will be left over the foothills.
