Slick road conditions late Wednesday night are possible as snow flurries and freezing rain are expected in El Paso County, forecasters say.

Snow could start dusting Colorado Springs around 11 p.m and continue through 1 a.m., the National Weather Service in Pueblo predicts.

There could be decreased visibility, too, as patchy fog descends upon the Front Range and lingers through Thursday morning, the weather service warns. 

The latest taste of winter is a turn from Wednesday's fall-like temperatures. Today's high is predicted at 57 degrees. 

Temperatures will rise again, with Saturday's high expected to reach 67 degrees, before another strong cold front crosses the Pikes Peak region. Forecasters predict more freezing drizzle and light snow to start falling Sunday night through Monday morning.

Here's the forecast through the weekend from the National Weather Service:

Today: Mostly sunny, with a high near 57.
