A cold front is moving south through southern Colorado Tuesday afternoon. Ahead of the front, temperatures have climbed in to the 50°s and 60°s. Once the front passes, winds turn out of the north and temperatures initially fall to the 30°s. A short time later temperatures drop quickly to the teens.
There will be a chance for a few snow showers through the evening and overnight. I bracket the hours of 6pm and 2am for the "prime time" for snow shower development. Data indicates there will be very little in the way of snow accumulation from the snow. We are looking for amounts of a half inch or less for Colorado Springs and perhaps up to an inch near Monument Hill. Other than a few stray flurries, Pueblo should not see any accumulating snow. It also looks doubtful there will be any accumulating snow south of El Paso County east of the mountains.
Winds will also be gusty, with gusts up to 35 to 40 mph, through the evening. This could take wind chill values to the single digits to near 0°.
Overnight, under cloudy skies, temperatures will drop to the single digits to teens. (Colorado Springs: 10° | Pueblo: 6°)
Expect to see sunny to mostly sunny skies Wednesday. Temperatures should recover, but will be cooler than they were Tuesday. Highs will be in the 40°s and 50°s. (Colorado Springs: 46° | Pueblo: 50°) - Meteorologist John Dissauer
