Fog will be dense at times during the morning but it will quickly burn off as we warm up. Strong winds will run down the mountains today, with warm air following the winds into the afternoon. The usual very windy spots like Cheyenne Mountain, Air Force Academy and Walsenburg will all see gusts to and over 40 mph at times today, but through Colorado Springs the gusts will be more likely in the 30 mph range at their worst with Pueblo and the plains in the 20 mph range. Other than a few light snows in the morning over the southern mountains, most of southern Colorado stays completely dry today.

Blowing snow with very strong winds return to the forecast starting Wednesday morning in the southern mountains, and then pivoting to the Palmer Divide by Wednesday night. The snow will be heaviest through the southern mountains of the Sangre De Cristos and Wets, where an easy 4 to 5 inches could fall, and likely more in several spots as you climb elevation. The Palmer Divide and Monument Hill will start seeing snow at the end of the day Wednesday with snow continuing through the overnight yours. Snow totals over Monument Hill look to be at least 2 inches with the possibility of more. For areas like Colorado Springs, we are expecting blowing snow mainly Wednesday evening, and while accumulations will probably stay at or under one inch, low visibility from blowing snow is still a large concern for the evening commute.
