Expect a chilly - and possibly snowy - start to spring across the Pikes Peak region.

A series of cold fronts could bring about 1 to 2 inches of snow to Colorado Springs this weekend, along with cooler temperatures than the region experienced earlier this week, said Mike Nosko, a hydrometeorological technician with the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

Colorado Springs should hit a high temperature of 49 degrees Friday - a 20-degree dip from Thursday's high, Nosko said.

A low-pressure system moving through the region on Saturday evening should lower temperatures even further, he said, while possibly dumping a couple inches of snow. The system should push out of southern Colorado by Sunday morning.

"It's a typical March spring storm," Nosko said.

Forecasters are calling for a high temperatures of 42 degrees on Saturday and Sunday.
