Monday started out our week in the best way possible, we had lots of sunshine and highs warmed up nearly 20 degrees higher than average in both Springs and Pueblo! Today we'll see more cloud cover with highs into the upper 60s and low 70s thanks to a down slope wind.
The biggest challenge to our high temperatures today will be cloud cover. Most modeling is showing partly cloudy to at times, almost mostly cloudy skies, both of which would want to fight to keep temperatures cooler. Despite the possible cloud cover, we still have the warm air mass from yesterday in place across southern Colorado and westerly down slope winds should kick in to move highs near 69 in Colorado Springs and 72 in Pueblo. A strong cold front is set to move through overnight Tuesday through Wednesday morning, meaning Wednesday's afternoon highs will be nearly 20 degrees colder with Springs only warming to around 50 and Pueblo 55 degrees.
Another brief but strong warm up is set to happen on Thursday with more windy, down slope winds pushing highs back into the low to mid 70s. Friday will be a day with wind advisories likely with wind speeds looking to gust over 50 mph through parts of southern Colorado. Friday will be cooler than Thursday with temperatures looking to be in the 60s and a decent shot of high mountain, Continental Divide snow.?
Snow in the south is rare event that often induces some panic, some accidents on the road, and in this case, social media gold.
