Today’s Forecast:
With all the rain and snow we’ve had over the last couple days, the atmosphere is PACKED with moisture. Fog and drizzle will be widespread and at times, dense, through southern Colorado this morning. Colorado Springs is going to see the most dense fog and drizzle through the morning hours, but as the day goes on, we’ll warm up and clear out the fog. Spotty showers are possible again this afternoon as weak moisture tries to hop over the Front Range into the Pikes Peak region.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 47; Low – 34. Heavy fog and drizzle will last well into the morning hours but by lunch time, we should see those conditions disappear or at the very least start to weaken considerably. Clouds will stick around today and with spotty showers trying to hop over the mountains to our west through the afternoon.

PUEBLO: High – 53; Low – 38. Cloudy, cold and foggy today but the fog should disappear through the late morning. Patchy sunshine will be possible by the end of the day allowing a slight warm up.

CANON CITY: High – 52; Low – 37. Cloudy and cold with any fog disappearing through the morning. Spotty showers are possible in the afternoon, especially over the western half of Fremont county.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 48; Low – 27. Cloudy and cold today with scattered showers, possibly mixed in with a few snowflakes, expected through the afternoon. Any fog this morning will clear up through the morning.

TRI-LAKES: High – 40s; Low – 30s. Dense fog and drizzle through the morning but we’ll clear things out by lunchtime. Spotty showers, even a few flurries mixed in, are possible this afternoon but we’ll dry out tonight.

PLAINS: High – 50s; Low – 30s. Cloudy and cold with some patchy fog through the morning. The warmest air will be south towards the border but the coolest temperatures will be felt as you drive east towards Lamar. Dry skies are expected for most of the plains.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 60s; Low – 30s. A few scattered showers to the Sangres this afternoon with a few snows at the summits. The warmest air on our area will be down from Walsenburg to Trinidad and areas out east in Las Animas county.

Clear skies come out tonight and the sun returns on Friday!!!!!!! Sunshine and dry skies will also help pull some fall like warmth back into the air with Springs warming to the mid 50s and Pueblo the lower 60s. Saturday looks just a few degrees warmer than Friday but with more wind. A very strong winter system is on track to hit us late Saturday night through Sunday morning. This will bring VERY cold air and probably some accumulating snow. As soon as we have a better idea of how much snow is coming, we’ll let you know.
