Today’s Forecast:
An intensifying storm now over Nevada and Utah, will increase our clouds through tonight, and bring beneficial precipitation Friday and a good part of Saturday as well. It is possible to get a solid half inch (liquid) of moisture out of this. Also, it is likely that, elevated areas like Teller, Fremont, Custer, Huerfano Counties, will see some wet snow out of this, particularly Friday night and Saturday morning. (Higher elevations to the west do have Winter weather Advisories, Storm Watches or Warnings in effect for heavy, wet snow tomorrow.) In essence, it does appear to be somewhat of a repeat of last Friday night’s storm. Concerns for icing, would be those areas and times, with perhaps Monument Hill included for early Saturday.

Showers (of rain) can arrive as early as mid-morning Friday. Breezy conditions this evening, and Friday evening into Saturday midday. Precipitation should be winding down quickly between dawn and midday Saturday for lower elevations, but could persist until evening for higher elevations.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low – 40, High – 45. Cloudy & breezy tonight. Showers Friday, changing to wet snow at night.

PUEBLO: Low – 48, High – 55. Cloudy, breezy tonight. Showers develop Friday late morning, on and off into evening. May end as wet snow overnight.
