Much cooler weather is on the way starting Thursday, and a blast of winter weather moves in for Saturday. A strong cold front will swing through the Front Range Thursday evening. The arrival of this front at your house will be obvious with 40 to 50 mph wind gusts. Thursday will be at least 30 degrees cooler for all of the Front Range cities, but our Front Range mountain communities will only be a few degrees cooler. The cold air mass will be fairly shallow and will not spill over the higher mountains. An even stronger cold front will swing through late Friday evening. This front will also bring a chance for some snow to the I-25 corridor Friday night into the morning hours of Saturday. Snow prone areas like the Palmer Divide and Teller County have chance to see a few inches out of this system. Even Colorado Springs and Pueblo may see some accumulating snowfall.
Colorado Springs: Partly cloudy, breezy at times, high 50
Pueblo: Partly cloudy, breezy at times, high 55
Monument: Mostly cloudy, breezy at times, high 46
Teller County: Partly Cloudy, high 47
