COLORADO SPRINGS/PUEBLO – We enjoyed Saturday’s amazing weather, but now it is over. A huge change is closing in overnight as a true arctic front will pass through carrying strong gusty winds snow showers. The system will move from north to south.
The greatest damage done by snow will be north of Colorado Springs and south of Pueblo with 3-5″ for both locales. The wind will huff and puff overnight and all day Sunday, 15-30 mph. The temps will plummet, from today’s 60s-70, down into the 20s tonight, and never recover Sunday, out of the 20s-30. Roads will likely become slippery, even in areas in between, that get “only” 1-3″, and visibility will be poor when the wind combines with times of snow.
Monday looks totally sunny, but a very cold morning, with afternoon highs finally reaching the 30s-40F.
