The passage of a cold front early Wednesday morning will mean colder temperatures than on Tuesday. Many areas just north of Colorado Springs will stay below freezing, but most areas from Colorado Springs south are expected to break freezing... barely. Cold spots will top out in the upper 20's. High temperatures in most areas, however, will be in the low-to-mid 30's.
The end of the week ends with a clear sky and mild temperatures. The clear weather will be perfect for viewing the Geminid Meteor Shower Thursday night/Friday morning and Friday night/Saturday morning. You could see a stray meteor streaking across the sky as early as tonight. Each night, watch the eastern sky early (8-9 PM) and gradually move up in the sky. Meteors will radiate from directly overhead from 1-3 AM, and then gradually toward the west by morning. The Geminid shower is known for its bright meteors. The meteor count often varies and can be anywhere from 40-90 meteors per hours during peak times.
