Snow moved into southern Colorado overnight and it’s going to continue for most of the morning commute. Snow will start to dry up and stop from north to south today, stopping in Colorado Springs through the morning and eventually drying up by Trinidad in the mid-afternoon. Sunshine will try and pop out by the end of the day, but highs will stay very chilly with freezing temperatures returning tonight.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 40; Low – 27. Steady snowfall will continue in Colorado Springs through the morning but the afternoon will be dry, just cold. Sunshine should return by the end of the day, working to melt down some of the accumulation. Freezing temperatures tonight could lead to a few icy spots tomorrow morning.
PUEBLO: High – 44; Low – 27. Rain mixed with snow over Pueblo will continue through the morning and likely through the lunch hour, but as the morning goes on we’ll likely see a complete switch back to light rain. Temperatures will drop to freezing tonight and there will probably be some ice out there tomorrow morning.
CANON CITY: High – 42; Low – 29. Snow will continue through the morning in Canon City with a possible transition to a wintry mix and light rain through the lunch hour. The afternoon will dry up and freezing temperatures tonight could lead to a few icy spots tomorrow morning.
WOODLAND PARK: High – 33; Low – 18. Light but steady snow will continue through the morning with dry skies into the lunch hour and through the afternoon. Temperatures will stay at or below freezing all day, so while we might have some melting, ice will be a concern all the way into tomorrow morning.
TRI-LAKES: High – 30s; Low – 20s. Snow will continue through the morning with drier air pushing in by lunch time. I-25 over Monument Hill will likely stay slick with freezing temperatures through most of the morning, but warmer afternoon temperatures will keep the interstate wet and then dry at and after lunch time.
PLAINS: High – 40s; Low – 20s. Rain will be the main form of precipitation from the morning into the afternoon across the plains, any light snow this morning will quickly turn back to a light rain as the day goes on. Tonight, freezing or near freezing temperatures could lead to a stray icy spot or two.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 30s; Low – 20s. Snow will continue through the mountains and southern I-25 corridor well into the afternoon, especially out across eastern Las Animas county. Snow will turn to a light rain as the day moves on in the lower elevations. Freezing temperatures could lead to some icy spots, especially on mountain roads and passes that saw more snowfall.
TRICK OR TREAT FORECAST:
We’ll be dry for all you trick or treaters… but it’s going to be cold! Temperatures are expected to dip to or below freezing for most of southern Colorado! There will not be any rain or snow but be careful walking around the neighborhood in case there is any ice lurking around.

Better weather is on tap as we head into the weekend! We are going to stay dry through Friday with warming temperatures. Highs will be in the 50s tomorrow with 60s on Friday! There is a small rain chance on Saturday but as of now, the impact to the Veterans Day Parade in Colorado Springs looks minimal as of now.
