Today’s Forecast:
A large low pressure system moving into Kansas and Nebraska today will spin rain and snow back into southern Colorado this morning through the afternoon. Rain will fall primarily across the lower elevations with snow falling mainly at elevations over 7500 feet. North winds today will keep temperatures very cool with Colorado Springs warming only into the low 50s and near 60 degrees in Pueblo. The winds will gust up over 20 mph today making temperatures feel much cooler. North winds will keep the bulk of the moisture no the Palmer Divide and Monument Hill as well as into the mountains west of I-25. Monument will likely see snow mixed in with rain through the morning but accumulation will be little to nothing as the roads are still warm. Woodland Park and much of Teller county will see the best snow accumulation with 1 to 3 inches expected through today. Tonight we’ll be dry and the winds will die down as temperatures fall into the 30s and 40s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 67; Low – 33. Morning light showers and sprinkles with a few heavy rains mixed in as we move towards noon. Generally drier through the second half of the day but light showers will still be possible off and on till the end of the afternoon. Tonight we’ll be cold and dry.

PUEBLO: High – 67; Low – 33. Scattered showers will be possible late this morning and through the early afternoon. Strong north winds will dry much of the rain coming into Pueblo but light showers are still expected off and on during the day. Tonight we’ll be cold and dry.
