Boulder got a taste of springlike weather Monday, but winter isn't done just yet. A storm is expected to move into the state Wednesday.

"Scattered rain and even some thunderstorms may occur Tuesday night into Wednesday, and then snow and blowing snow, especially on the northeastern plains of Colorado, late Wednesday and Wednesday night," meteorologist Matt Kelsch wrote on his weather blog Monday.

The storm has the potential to close Interstates 70 and 76, and possibly sections of I-25, Kelsch wrote, but he isn't predicting as big an impact in the Boulder region. He is forecasting 6 to 12 inches of snow in spots east of I-25, but predicts Boulder and Longmont will be spared the extra inches, with less than 6 inches of accumulation.

Other models predict as many as 8 to 12 inches in Boulder and Longmont on Wednesday.

Until the storm arrives, temperatures will still feel more like spring, with a high of 58 predicted for both Boulder and Longmont Tuesday.

The overnight low is expected to dip to 36, before daytime temps climb to 40 in Boulder and 38 in Longmont.

Temps are predicted to stay in the 30s Thursday, and reach the 40s Friday and Saturday before heading back into the 50s to start next week.
