First Alert 5 Forecast: Cold Today, Even Colder Tonight

Posted: Updated:

We've been waiting for Winter to finally catch up to us across southern Colorado and it looks like it's finally found us. As cold as the last couple days have been, today will be even colder with a deeper chill expected to return tonight.

A strong cold, Canadian air mass has settled into southern Colorado and we really felt it this morning with temperatures starting out in the teens and a few 20s! We'll warm up slightly, but not much today as strong north to northeasterly winds continue to slide cold air into the viewing area. Colorado Springs should warm towards 33 and Pueblo 37 degrees with wind chills making it feel more like the upper 20s. 

Tonight we're going to get very cold again with a bit of light snow possible across the southern Front Range. The Palmer Divide could see an isolated snow shower at the end of the afternoon into the early evening with light accumulations expected. Temperatures will fall back into the mid to low teens across the lower elevations with single digit temperatures expected for places like Woodland Park and Monument. The winds will be stronger tonight which will mean wind chill values overnight into Thursday morning will be at or below zero for much of the viewing area. This will be dangerous for any children out at the bus stop Thursday morning so be sure and have them extra bundled up in the morning.

(Light snow possible tonight across the southern I-25 corridor)

Light snow overnight will be possible across the southern Sangre De Cristo and Wet mountain ranges. The upper elevations of the ranges might see over 2 inches of snow but lower elevations west of the interstate would likely stay at or under an inch. More light snow is expected Thursday night up around the Palmer Divide, accumulations still look pretty low but we'll keep an eye on that as even light snow will stick to the roads.
