TODAY: After the snow and rain we saw late last night and early this morning...today will be filled with more sunshine and chilly temperatures. 44 for Colorado Springs and as much as 50 in Pueblo.
TONIGHT: With clearer skies expected over night we will have colder temperatures 25 for Colorado Springs, 28 for Canon City, and 19 for Pueblo.
FRIDAY: Plenty of sunshine and cold to start the day....by afternoon temperatures will warm nicely with highs at 50s in Colorado Springs and upper 50s to 60 in Pueblo, Canon City, and Trinidad. A couple things you might also notice about tomorrow's forecast are increasing clouds in the afternoon and it may become a bit breezy as the next storm approaches the state. We are expecting snow showers to begin flying again in the mountains as more moisture and colder air stream-in. Skiers and snow boarders will be happy to know that snow will be possible all the way through Tuesday.
SATURDAY: Pretty quiet start to the day locally, but as the day goes-on it will be colder and by afternoon and evening we'll have some snow showers back in the forecast! Temps only make it to 41 in the Springs and the upper 40's in Pueblo and Canon. More clouds and a better chance of some showers...first over the Rampart Range/Wets and Sangre de Cristo's. We'll start to see some snow or even rain showers by later afternoon across El Paso County and evening for the lower elevations. Through Sunday the best chance for measureable snow will across northern El Paso and Teller County and the mountains west of I-25.
SUNDAY: Colder with a chance for some areas of light snow to start the day. Again...best chance for accumulations of continues for the mountains and around the Pikes Peak region. Lower elevation locations from Pueblo to Lamar shouldn't see much moisture. You'll feel the chill in the air with highs of only 33 for Colorado Springs and 37 in Pueblo. Some spots in Teller County will stay in the 20's with a chance of snow continuing during the day and again by evening with another storm that we hope will be southern Colorado a better chance of moisture compared to the first on Saturday night.
MONDAY: Our coldest day of the next seven will bring us temps in the 20's in the Springs, lower 30's on the plains and only teens in Teller County. Snow showers appear, at this point, to be a little more likely for the higher elevations and the lower elevations. We'll keep you posted.
TUESDAY: Still pretty chilly...with perhaps a few light snow flurries on the eastern plains early in the day. High temps only reach the lower 30's in Colorado Springs and the upper 30's for Pueblo, Canon and La Junta. Skies will start cloudy and then become partly sunny during the day as the upslope weakens along the Front Range.
