Today’s Forecast:

Winds will be the main issues today. They’ll be strong from the west and northwest with gusts getting close to or over 40 mph at times. The strongest winds should be from Pueblo and areas of the plains. A dry day with mainly sunny to partly cloudy skies. Clouds will try to push in from the west and northeast. Some mountain snow this morning, tapering off throughout the day. Temperatures will be around to just above average with highs in the 40’s and 50’s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 46; Low – 23. A windy day with dry conditions and some sunshine early.

PUEBLO: High – 54; Low – 20. Gusty at times with highs in the 50’s. 

CANON CITY: High – 67; Low – 33. A windy day with mainly sunny skies.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 67; Low – 33. A breezy day with dry conditions.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 50’s; Low – 10’s. A gusty day with mainly sunny skies.

NEXT WEEK: Mainly clear tonight with lows in the 20’s for most. Cold on Sunday with highs in the 30’s to near 40. Increasing clouds throughout the day. The system heading our way is showing up weaker and weaker as new models come in. We’re not looking at anything impressive in terms of snow. Flurries to light snow for most areas with little, if any, accumulation through the second half of Sunday into the overnight. Most of the lower elevations will have a tough time getting the snow to add up. The best chances at accumulations will be for the Wets/Sangres where a few inches will be possible for the high elevations. Temperatures will stay below average for the rest of the week. Wednesday looks to be the warmest day with highs in the 40’s. Varying amounts of cloud cover, but mainly dry through the middle part of the week. The next chance for any rain/snow will hold off until later Thursday into Friday at this point, though there is still disagreement among long term models.
