Rain is changing over to snow in many areas west of I-25 along and just south of U.S. 50. A change over from rain to snow will cotinue as we go through the evening hours.
As of 6:00pm MT here is a list of snow reports in to the weather office...
- 8" Florissant
- 8" 1 mile WSW of Woodland Park
- 3" 2 miles north of Black Forest
- 2" 2 miles WSW of Colorado Springs
These numbers will likely continue to add up.
Looking over the latest data I am going to stick with my snow forecast. Here is a look at how much I think we will see through noon Monday.
- Colorado Springs: 2"-6"
- Northern/Northwestern El Paso County: 6"-10"
- Fremont County: 1"-6" with 6"-10" in higher elevations
- Monument Hill: 9"-14"
- Pueblo: Up to 1/2"
- Teller County: 8"-14 with localized amounts up to 18"
Snow should begin to taper off across the area by mid to late Monday morning. There could be a few snow showers in the afternoon, but nothint that will add up to anything.
WINDS TO HOWL OVERNIGHT
Winds will continue to gust 40 to 45mph through the overnight and in to Monday morning. By mid-afternoon, winds should begin to diminish somewhat, but gusts will still be up to 30mph through sunset.
PULL OUT THE COAT
You'll want to grab the coat for work and school Monday. Temperatures will only top out in the 30°s and 40°s during the afternoon. Factor in the wind and wind chills will be in the 20°s at times. (Colorado Springs: 38° | Pueblo: 42°) - Meteorologist John Dissauer
