Snow Arrives Saturday Evening

If you're ready for more snow, then you'll probably like the weekend forecast... especially Saturday Night.

Through tonight, skies will stay mostly cloudy, but we won't see much snow.  Teller County could pick up a quick 1-2 inches with some light snow, but everyone else will stay dry through early Saturday.

During the day Saturday, temperatures will be staying well below average.  Highs for most will stay in the 30s and 40s.  Plus, it'll be breezy at times, so that will drop wind chills down in the 20s.  If you do want to do some errands on Saturday, but don't want to deal with the rain/snow, do them early.  By late afternoon showers will move in from the north.  The beginning line could fall in the form of rain, but it'll quickly turn over to snow as temperatures continue to drop.  The worst of the weather will be from 10 PM Saturday through 6 AM Sunday.  This is when we'll see accumulations and some slippery conditions.

Snowfall through Sunday morning will look like this:

Teller County 3-6"

El Paso County 2-3"

Pueblo County 1-2"

Wet & Sangre Mountains 3-5"

Higher elevations will continue to see light snow showers through Sunday morning.  The lower elevations will dry quickly through the early morning.  The rest of Sunday will just be cloudy and cool.

The work week starts with the cool air continuing.  An arctic blast is going to come out of Canada and pin the cool temperatures against the Rockies.  So its not until late Tuesday into Wednesday that temperatures once again start to climb.

I hope you have a great weekend... Meteorologist Valerie Abati
