Temperatures Thursday morning came within a few degrees of tying record low temperatures. Colorado Springs dropped to -15°, coming within 1° of tying the record of -16°. Pueblo dropped to -16° (record -23°).
We will see temperatures warming over the next 48 hours before another cold front passes through the region. While temperatures will be warming, don't break out the shorts and flip-flops just yet.
Tonight under mostly clear skies temperatures will drop anywhere from below zero (along the I-25 corridor) to the teens in the higher elevations of the mountains. (Colorado Springs: -2° | Pueblo: -7°)
Expect to see partly to mostly cloudy skies Friday. Highs will top out in the 30°s. (Colorado Springs: 30° | Pueblo: 37°)
The previously mentioned cold front will pass through southern Colorado early morning Sunday. Temperatures are projected to drop through the morning and remain cooler during the afternoon. Highs will likely be 20° cooler than Saturday afternoon.
A disturbance in the upper-levels of the atmosphere is projected to move through Colorado Monday. The disturbance could produce snow in the region Monday and could linger in to early Tuesday morning. At this point, it is a relatively small chance for snow, but it is something we will continue to monitor over the next several days. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
