A Winter Weather Advisory is in effect for the Palmer Divide and Teller County through 9am Tuesday and for the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains through noon Tuesday. Snow accumulation of 4 to 8" is possible for these locations.
Expect it to feel and look a lot like winter once again tonight and Tuesday. There will be periods of snow across Southern Colorado tonight with it gradually coming to an end across the region Tuesday afternoon.
Snowfall totals range anywhere from 4 to 8" over the higher elevation locations including Monument, Black Forest, Woodland Park, Cripple Creek, and the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Colorado Springs looks to pick 2 to 4" into Tuesday morning with an additional inch possible Tuesday afternoon. Pueblo, Canon City, and the Southeastern Plains may pick up 1 to 2" of snow through the same time frame.
Spring-like weather will quickly return to Southern Colorado with highs back in the 50s Wednesday and highs in the 60s/70s by the weekend. The weather pattern looks fairly quiet from the middle of the week through early next week with no major storm systems expected.
