We have been tracking a storm as it moved through the Pacific Northwest, and this morning that storm was bringing snow the Northern Rockies in western Montana. We are ahead of that approaching storm, so we will be warm today and the sun will shine throughout much of the day. By late this afternoon, however, clouds will begin to flow into our Southern Colorado and they will thicken tonight.
Today, expect highs in the lower 80's around Colorado Springs and Cañon City with mid-to-upper 80's around Pueblo. Monument Hill will warm into the lower 70's this afternoon, while highs will be in the 60's throughout most of Teller County. The Southeastern Plains will warm to near 90 in many areas. The south end of I-25 around Trinidad and Walsenburg will max out today in the lower 80's.
That storm system bringing snow to Montana this morning will move our way tomorrow. It will bring snow to the mountains, but expect sporadic rain showers east of the mountains. In Teller County, expect rain to start, but it could change briefly to snow before precipitation ends early Saturday morning. Temperatures will also cool on Friday and they will fall off quickly Friday night. If you have plans to go to one of the high school football games, have a poncho just in case. You also will need a jacket.
