Snowflakes are likely to fly this afternoon in the Pikes Peak region, but by Sunday morning, you won't even know they were here.

The National Weather Service in Pueblo predicts scattered rain showers will move in over the region at around 4 p.m., then as temperatures drop, rain drops will turn to snow flakes.

While there's a 60 percent chance of precipitation for the region, forecasters say the northern areas of El Paso County will see much more snow than those in the central and southern portions of the county.

"Colorado Springs might see a few snowflakes, but up north, they could get two or three inches," said meteorologist Steve Hodanish, "This is one of those typical spring storms. They move in, drop a little snow, then they're gone, and they move fast."

So fast, in fact, skies should clear by evening, and by morning it'll be blue skies over the region, Hodanish said.

The forecast for Sunday is mostly sunny, with a high near 54.

"Tomorrow is going to be a beautiful day," Hodanish said.
