Today’s Forecast:
A cold front that pushed through the area overnight into this morning is dragging very strong winds with it from El Paso county down south through Pueblo to the border and out into the plains. Early morning gusts were in the 40s in Colorado Springs and 30s in Pueblo with similar wind speeds expected through the morning into the noon hour. After noon we’ll start to see the winds relax as the cool front pulls away and the evening commute will see speeds between 10 to 20 mph instead of the 30 to 40 mph winds from the morning. Temperatures will stay mild today with Colorado Springs warming to the upper 50s and Pueblo the mid 60s.
