I know it is winter and it is supposed to be cold...but come on. -4 this morning in Colorado Springs, -7 in Pueblo and a record low Tuesday in Alamosa of -32! Yep...it is time for some warmer weather.
TONIGHT: Partly to mostly cloudy and much milder! Temps overnight in many locations will be at least 20 degrees warmer than Monday night/Tuesday morning. A disturbance will push through eastern Colorado from the northwest and bring us a bit of a breeze through the start of the Wednesday forecast.
WEDNESDAY-FRIDAY: Our warming trend begins Wednesday with temps of 53 in the Springs and 57 in Pueblo making it the warmest day of the New Year for most of us. There will be a breeze through late morning and early afternoon for our friends to the south and east including: Walsenburg, Trinidad, La Junta, Lamar and Springfield as that disturbance leaves the state. Sunny, mild weather continues for Thursday and Friday with temps staying above average...just not quite as warm as Wednesday.
SATURDAY: The weekend begins will quiet weather and cool...not cold, afternoon temps. Expect highs of 49 in Colorado Springs and about 51 in Pueblo. The dry weather will also continue for the mountains, so if you are a skier or boarder...don't expect any new powder anytime soon.
SUNDAY: Plenty of sun to start the day with dry skies expected. There will be a surge of some very cold air push on to the eastern plains during the day and some of that air could push up against the mountains during the afternoon. High temps should be a couple of degrees cooler along the I-25 corridor compared to Saturday...much cooler on the eastern plains near the border with Kansas where the colder air will be more widespread.
MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR DAY: You'll notice some colder temps to start the new week. Skies will partly cloudy to mostly sunny with high temps about 8-10 degrees colder than Sunday. Upper 30's to right around 40 in both Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
TUESDAY: Sunny skies and much warmer than Monday. 50 for Colorado Springs and about 53 for Pueblo.
