The main weather story for the remainder of the week won't be snow, but instead cold temperatures.
A cold front is slowly progressing through southern Colorado Tuesday afternoon. This is going to allow for arctic air to usher in overnight. Lows will be dropping down to near or below zero degrees. (Colorado Springs: -5° | Pueblo: -4°)
Don't expect much in the way of warmer temperatures Wednesday. In fact, it will likely be the opposite as temperatures will be 40°-45° below normal. Highs will mainly be in the single digits under mostly cloudy to cloudy skies. (Colorado Springs: 4° | Pueblo: 6°) There is also a 60% chance of light snow falling through the day. I am not expecting much in the way of accumulation. Perhaps 1/4" to as much as 3/4" through Wednesday night.
We are in the process of having a significant weather pattern shift. This shift (as depicated by the graphic at right) is going to keep temperatures for southern Colorado WELL below normal. Highs will struggle to get out of the teens through the end of the week. We will also have several mornings with temperatures below zero.
It does appear that most of the area will finally get back up above freezing Sunday afternoon. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
