After a COLD start to the day, we’ll see sunshine and high pressure push temperatures back above freezing! What little snow we’ve received over the last few days will melt this afternoon, meaning I would wait until the afternoon to wash your car. Tonight, continued clear skies and light winds will mean lows fall back into the mid to low teens, and likely a few single digits, especially in the mountains.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 38; Low – 13. Mostly sunny skies with breezy winds off and on today and highs back above freezing.
PUEBLO: High – 46; Low – 9. Sunny skies, light winds and temperatures well above freezing.
CANON CITY: High – 41; Low – 16. Sunny skies, breezy winds off and on today with highs above freezing.
WOODLAND PARK: High – 30; Low – 8. Sunny skies with a light breeze and high temps just below freezing.
TRI-LAKES: High – 30s; Low – 10s. Sunny skies, light winds and afternoon highs up around freezing.
PLAINS: High – 40s; Low – 10s. Sunny skies, light winds and temperatures well above freezing.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 30s; Low – 10s. Sunny skies, breezy winds off and on today with highs above freezing.
The forecast through this week will feature very cold mornings all the way through the weekend, and highs that are better some days than others. Tomorrow for instance, high temperatures in the afternoon should peak into the upper 40s and lower 50s, even with a morning in the teens and single digits. A strong cold front will push through Wednesday night and send highs on Thursday back towards freezing for most of the region.
The next system to watch comes late in the day Friday and leaves Saturday morning. Right now, most modeling keeps the bulk of this snow down south of Colorado into New Mexico… but these systems usually still have the ability to throw some snow into our area. For now, we’re thinking any decent accumulating snow from this system stays south of highway 50 and leaves by Saturday around lunch time.
