TODAY: No record high temps today along the Front Range compared to the last couple of days. Temps will be about 12-15 degrees cooler than yesterday. We'll see a mix of clouds and sunshine through the afternoon with lighter winds.
TONIGHT: A mix of clouds and clear skies tonight with ‘mild-ish' low temps around 30 in Colorado Springs and 24 in Pueblo. Temps in Canon City will stay in the lower to mid 30's.
SATURDAY: A little bit warmer tomorrow with areas of clouds and some sunshine on-and-off through the day. Temps will be about 2-4 degrees warmer than today's highs. There will actually be a slight chance for the Front Range and higher elevations of a stray shower or two thanks to a Pacific storm that will start hitting the mountains. Chances only 10% for Colorado Springs and Pueblo...but around 10-20% for Canon City. Chances for light rain or snow go up to about 20% over Teller County and places like Monument, Calhan and Falcon. That Pacific storm will bring a good shot of snow to the higher elevations of western Colorado and for the ski areas. Good news if you have plans to make some turns. From Saturday through Sunday evening snow totals will range from 6-12" for Monarch Mtn, Wolf Creek and Crested Butte. As much as 8-16" of snow is possible around Telluride, Pagosa Springs and Silverton.
SUNDAY: As that storm leaves the state we'll, see more sunshine across eastern Colorado and warmer temps. Highs should be about 2-4 degrees warmer than Saturday. Snow will still be possible for western Colorado so keep an eye on the road reports.
MONDAY: Expect snow to be flying at the higher elevations again as yet another Pacific storm moves-in. Locally it will partly sunny and a bit breezy. High temps should be about 3-5 degrees lower than Sunday...but still warmer than average. By late Monday and early Tuesday there will be a slight chance of a few light snow showers over the mountains close to home and an even lower chance of an isolated shower at the lower elevations. Chances are only about 10% for the lower elevations...but as much as 20% for the Rampart Range, Sangre de Cristo's and the Wet Mountains.
TUESDAY: The day starts with that chance for a few showers locally. During the afternoon it will be calmer with partly cloudy skies and temps in the 40's! In the mountains things will calm down as well with decreasing snow and clouds.
WEDNESDAY: Mostly sunny skies return...but so do the colder temps! Highs will only reach about 37 degrees in the Springs and 42 in Pueblo and Canon City.
