Today’s Forecast:
Cloud cover will start to thicken up as the day moves along, and that means we’re going to be much cooler compared to Monday. Rain will also start to move through Colorado but most of the I-25 corridor will stay dry until tonight. Anyone south of Pueblo and west into the mountains should expect late day scattered showers with only a little snow up above 10,000 feet into the summits of the Sangres.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 58; Low – 44. Mostly cloudy and chilly with no rain expected through the day, and only weak, spotty showers possible after midnight.

PUEBLO: High – 62; Low – 47. Mostly cloudy and cool with no rain expected during the day time and only a few scattered showers possible this evening.

CANON CITY: High – 60; Low – 46. Mostly cloudy and cool with light, scattered late day and evening showers possible.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 54; Low – 38. Mostly cloudy and chilly today with light, scattered showers (some weak snow could be mixed in) possible this evening.

TRI-LAKES: High – 50s; Low – 30s. Mostly cloudy and chilly with no rain expected through the day and only spotty showers after midnight.

PLAINS: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Becoming cloudy and cool with no rain expected except for central Las Animas county later this afternoon and through the evening.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Cloudy and chilly with rain likely through the Sangres west of Walsenburg and Trinidad first in the mid afternoon, and then spreading into both town through the end of the day. Rain will be off and on throughout the overnight hours into Wednesday.

Wet Wednesday:
Most of the accumulating rain will fall from Wednesday morning through the evening from teh mountains out to the plains. Rain will be heaviest from Pueblo south through the Sangres, Walsenburg and Trinidad and then out east through the plains. The plains will get the bulk of the moisture with widespread totals from .25″ to .75″. Colorado Springs should get some rain, but we’ll probably get boxed out from the mountains and we shouldn’t expect a huge soak, just light off and on showers from the morning through early Wednesday afternoon.
