EXTENDED OUTLOOK:
A cold front arrives tonight and tomorrow morning with snow to follow, moving from the north to the south. Snow will be quick moving and light, but we should still see accumulation and plenty of slick roads from the morning to lunch. The Palmer Divide, Monument Hill and the plains will be the best areas to see accumulation, where as the southern I-25 corridor and southern mountains will see little to no snow. Monument Hill will range between 1 to 3 inches of snow, downtown Colorado Springs will likely stay under one inch but to the north and northeast sides of town, an inch or more is possible. The plains, areas around La Junta to the east, will see at or just over 1 inch. The southern I-25 corridor (south of Pueblo) and mountains to the west should generally see little to no snow, any accumulation under 1 inch.
