Our Wednesday will be warm, but Thursday is a transition day that will see a slight cool down before a huge temperature change happens on Friday.
Today will be mostly sunny and breezy. Highs will be in the mid-70's around Colorado Springs with mid-80's around Pueblo and in the Southeastern Plains, near 80 along the mountains from Cañon City to Walsenburg to Trinidad, and 60's and lower 70's from Monument Hill to Teller County.
Temperatures will cool 8-10 degrees on Thursday and then another 20 degrees on Friday. Friday's warmest temperatures in the upper 40's and lower 50's likely will occur early in the morning. During much of the day, be ready for 30's and lower 40's with a brisk wind and cloud cover. Additionally, cold rain will fall in the lower elevations, while higher elevations likely will see a round of snow. Higher elevations include Monument Hill and Teller County. You should also expect snow if you have plans to go to Denver on Friday. Snowfall totals will be no more than 1-2 inches in the actually see snow, but most of that likely will not accumulate except on grassy surfaces and trees.
