As colder air races into the News 5 viewing area, and the snowflakes start to fly, be prepared for gusty winds, producing wind chills in the 0 to 5 below range Monday night and Tuesday morning. Snow accumulations won't be impressive, but could be several inches along the Palmer Divide, the higher elevations west of Colorado Springs and the mountains. In addition, blowing snow from Falcon eastward will put even more ice on the roads, so plan extra time for your morning commute. Tuesday's highs will remain in the 20s/30s, and feel colder because of the wind. Wednesday will be sunny, with less wind and warmer (30s), but still not back to average. Breezes, 30s/40s will be the rule on Thursday, with similar conditions on Friday, with a warmer weekend ahead.
