TODAY: Partly sunny, with a high near 55 Colorado Springs, near 60 in Pueblo and Canon City.
TONIGHT: Mostly cloudy with lows falling into the mid to low 30s in most areas, upper 20s in Teller County.
***A WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY FOR SNOW STARTS AT 6 PM THIS EVENING AND CONTINUES THROUGH NOON MDT THURSDAY.***
For the San Juan and La Garita Mountains above 10,000 ft., the Sawatch Mountains and the Western Mosquito Range above 11,000 ft.
These areas can expect 3-8" of snow by noon Thursday.
Icy, snow covered roads will result in hazardous travel over passes like Independence Pass, North Pass, Cumbres Pass and Wolf Creek Pass.
The eastern mountains could get 1-2" by noon Thursday.
TOMORROW: Mostly cloudy with temperatures similar to today and seasonal. Highs in the 50s and 60s. A slight chance of snow, then rain, then snow showers. Breezy northwest winds 15 to 20 mph in the afternoon.
A Pacific system will move quickly through the area bringing 1-3" of snow to the Continental Divide, isolated rain showers and strong winds to the eastern mountains and the plains.
TOMORROW NIGHT: Blustery with mostly cloudy skies, chance for snow, winds out of the northwest at 25 mph. Lows will fall into the mid to upper 20s.
FRIDAY: Cold and unsettled conditions with highs in the 30s and low 40s. Blustery with windy and snowy conditions expected.
FRIDAY NIGHT: Mostly cloudy and cold with lows in the 20s.
Another strong storm system will usher in cold arctic air and a chance for snow for southeastern Colorado Friday night and Saturday. The central mountains, northern Teller, northern El Paso, Kiowa and Prowers Counties have the best chance for snow. The wind will be blowing from the north so we will also be concerned with blowing and drifting snow and hazardous driving conditions.
SATURDAY-MONDAY: Very cold, cloudy and windy with a chance for snow showers each day. Highs will be in the 20 and 30s with lows in the teens to low 20s. We will be monitoring this over the next couple days as it takes shape. We will keep you updated.
