Dense fog and icy streets the the big weather impact this morning, so be very careful on any early morning drives today, whether it be Sunday service, groceries or trips to the mountains to ski. The fog will diminish and the icy streets will turn wet as we warm up today.
Most of southern Colorado dries out today, but not all as some snow moves in from Arizona and New Mexico. Light snow is expected through the San Luis Valley as well as the southern mountains, such as the Sangres. A touch of this light snow could make it to the plains adjacent to the southern mountains, such as Trinidad, but little to no actual snow accumulation is expected. A few inches are possible in the Sangres through the day. The rest of us will be cloudy, cold and dry. Any areas that see melting today could easily become icy again tonight with very cold overnight temperatures.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 37; Low – 18. Cloudy, cold and dry today with snow melt through the grassy areas and some of the side streets on the north side of town. Any sidewalks and streets that stay wet tonight from the snow melt could easily freeze over and become icy tonight as very cold air sets in.
PUEBLO: High – 40; Low – 17. Cloudy and cold today, although Pueblo will likely be one of the warmest spots on the map. Any wet spots from the last few days that stay wet tonight could once again freeze as we dip well below freezing.
CANON CITY: High – 39; Low – 23. Flurries are possible through the morning with very slick roads on highway 50 drives west as heavier leftover snow falls over the first half of the day. Tonight any wet areas could get icy when temperatures drop below freezing.
WOODLAND PARK: High – 33; Low – 15. Cloudy and cold today but we will finally be dry. While cold, there could be some snow melt on the roads today, and that would mean ice once again becomes a problem tonight, especially on side walks and smaller streets.
TRI-LAKES: High – 30s; Low – 10s. Cold and cloudy today but we will finally be dry. While cold, there could be some snow melt on the roads today, and that would mean ice once again becomes a problem tonight, especially on side walks and smaller streets.
PLAINS: High – 40s; Low – 20s. Cloudy and dry today across most of the plains today, but a few flurries are possible in Las Animas county, especially towards the west. Any roads that remain wet today could once again easily become icy by tomorrow morning.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 30s; Low – 10s. Light snow is possible across the plains just east of the Sangre De Cristos today, but little to no actual accumulation is expected, other than in the mountains. That being said, we will be very cold tonight, so any snow that does fall and makes the roads wet could easily become icy once again tonight and so morning drives will need to be treated carefully.
Warmer weather returns tomorrow across all of southern Colorado! The lower elevations will warm into the 40s and 50s, the mountains more so into the upper 30s and 40s with continued snow melt. Tuesday through Thursday we’ll see wide spread 50s across the area but by Friday and Saturday, our next system to bring rain and snow arrives.
