As snow accumlates on the slopes in the mountains this weekend, the sun will shine in the Pikes Peak region, meteorlogists say.

The National Weather Service in Pueblo forecast a high of 49 degrees Friday in Colorado Springs. Winds will be gusty, reaching as high as 35 mph.

The winds will die down Friday evening, and skies will clear for a sunny weekend. The weather service expects a high of 45 degrees Saturday and 51 degrees Sunday.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day is predicted to be a bit colder, with a high of 35 degrees, which is just below the 41 degree average for this time of year.

The snowstorm hitting the high country is moving east, dropping snow predominately on areas closer to Denver.

Arapahoe Basin recorded the most snow overnight with 6 inches. Brecenridge and Loveland did not lag too far behind with 5 inches, while Beaver Creek, Cooper, Monarch, Keystone and Vail all saw between 1 and 2 inches.

OpenSnow forecaster Joel Gratz expects snow to fall through Friday night before the storm dissolves for the weekend.
