TODAY: In the wake of the wind and snow we had on Sunday, today will be sunny, breezy and brisk. High temps only make it to around 33 in Colorado Springs and the upper 30's for Canon City and Pueblo. It will feel colder still today due to the breezy north to northwest winds at 10-20 mph early in the day. Stronger winds possible early today out on the eastern plains for La Junta, Las Animas and Lamar.
TONIGHT: Mostly clear most of the night and cold! Temps tumble to 15 in the Springs, 13 in Pueblo...about 15 in Pueblo West. Temp tonight in Canon City not quite as cold...around 20. There is another, weaker Pacific storm that will start to spread a little light snow across the western half of Colorado late tonight and into Tuesday.
TUESDAY: That same storm slides down the Front Range after the lunch-hour tomorrow bringing some gusty winds, more clouds and some scattered snow and rain showers. Chances are about 30% for the Springs and Canon City. 20% chance for Pueblo and Pueblo West. 40% chance around Monument Hill and Teller County. In those areas it will be possible for another quick 1-2" or so as-well-as for Rye and Beulah. Less than an inch in the Springs...light dusty possible for Canon and a little rain possible for Pueblo and then a few flurries. High temps tomorrow will be right around our highs for today.
WEDNESDAY-THURSDAY: Much more sunshine and staying chilly. Temps across eastern Colorado will be in the middle to upper 30's for the Springs and Ft. Carson...around 40 or so in Pueblo and Canon City. Those temps are at least 7-10 degrees colder than average.
FRIDAY: The first day of the new month of March will be filled with sunshine, dry skies and temps that should be at least 8-10 degrees warmer than our brisk temps on Thursday.
SATURDAY-SUNDAY: If you are ready for some warmer weather...you'll be getting your wish this weekend! Temps on Saturday will warm to 50 degrees in Colorado Springs, 53 at Ft. Carson and the mid 50's in Pueblo, Pueblo West, La Junta and Canon City. Plenty of sunshine again on ‘Sun-day' and even warmer. Temps should be at least another 5 degrees above highs to start the w
