A storm system is currently in the northwest United States and is headed east. Southern Colorado should feel the affects of the storm late Tuesday afternoon and evening as a cold front passes during the afternoon.
Ahead of the front, temperatures will climb to the 40°s and 50°s. (Colorado Springs: 44° | Pueblo: 50°) Temperatures will fall once the front passes.
Computer models are suggesting there will be very little moisture for the cold front to work with. There could be an inch or two around Monument Hill. Perhaps up to an inch and a half along the Palmer Divide, in Teller County and over the Sangre de Cristo and Wet mountains. Otherwise, expect to see a brief period of light rain changing over to light snow north of U.S. 50.
Along and south of U.S. 50 I don't believe there will be much in the way of precipitation. If anything does fall, it will likely fall in the form of light rain and possibly a snow flurry. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
