A terrific weekend, and an amazing Monday, with highs reminiscent of later Summer…and then, it’s off the Thermal Cliff we go, Tuesday. A cold front, supported by a change in the Jet Stream for our area, means temps plummet Monday night into Tuesday morning, and have a hard time recovering. Expect much colder weather Tuesday through Friday.

As for precipitation, up-slope wind flow at the surface will help generate some light rain Tuesday PM into the night, which will change for some (above 7000 feet) to wet snow into Wednesday morning. I think it quits for the I-25 corridor through the Plains Wednesday, in the mid-morning hours, but could persist in the Pikes Peak region.

Wednesday morning could therefore, be a Weather Alert Day for early morning slick spots.

Colorado Springs: Low: 42, High: 79. Clear tonight. Sunny and amazing, Monday.

Pueblo: Low: 38, High: 84. Clear tonight. Sunny and spectacular, Monday.

Canon City: Low: 40, High: 82. Clear tonight. Sunny and fantastic, Monday.

Woodland Park: Low: 36, High: 66. Clear tonight. Sunny and gorgeous, Monday.

Tri-Lakes: Low: 38, High: 76. Clear tonight. Sunny and gorgeous, Monday.

The Plains: Low: 43, High: 82. Clear tonight. Sunny and Summer-like, Monday.

Trinidad/Walsenburg: Low: 42, High: 84. Clear tonight. Sunny and amazing, Monday.

Extended Outlook…After light rain Tuesday PM and evening, ending as wet snow for some Wednesday morning, expect some wind and another shower Thursday late day and evening, with a re-enforcing shot of colder air…
