Today’s Forecast:
Light snow has stuck around into the early morning hours of Tuesday, but we’re going to quickly move into a dry mid morning and afternoon. One last push of light snow returns late today and tonight, just in time to affect some of the evening commute, especially north to Denver.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 20; Low – 6. A few snowflakes across town through the morning with dry skies from lunch to the mid afternoon. Light snow returns from the north and west around 6 pm with most of town seeing somewhere between a dusting to 1 inch. West towards Manitou Springs or the Air Force Academy could get accumulation closer to 2 inches.

PUEBLO: High – 23; Low – 6. Light snow returns to Pueblo around 6 to 7 pm tonight, arriving first in Pueblo West and then pushing east to the plains. Snow totals look to range from a dusting to 2 inches.

CANON CITY: High – 24; Low – 10. Light snow returns to western Fremont county and the surrounding mountains around 3 to 4 pm and Canon City and towns to the east sometime between 5 to 6 pm with a dusting to 2 inches expected.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 21; Low – 1. Light snow arrives around 4 to 5 pm later today could easily make the evening commute home slick through Woodland Park and Ute Pass. A dusting to 2 inches is expected across Woodland Park and the majority of Teller county, with only a few localized high spots seeing over 2 inches.

TRI-LAKES: High – 10s; Low – <10. Light snow moves down from Castle Rock and across from the mountains to bring light snow to the Tri Lakes area around 5 to 6 pm tonight. The evening commute will likely become slick from very cold roadway. A dusting to 2 inches is expected by the time the snow ends, but up towards Castle Rock lies a better chance for accumulation between 1 to 3 inches.

PLAINS: High – 20s; Low – 10s. Light snow arrives to the plains tonight, but really only areas along and north of highway 50 tonight after 7 pm and lasting just past midnight. Snow accumulation south of highway 50 will be nothing to a dusting, north of 50 will be a dusting to 2 inches.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 20s; Low – <10. Light snow comes off the Sangres towards Westcliffe this afternoon and leaves snow totals between 1 to 3 inches. Little to no snow is expected through the southern I-25 corridor is going to see totals at or much more likely, under 1 inch.

FINALLY, we get some dry skies back into the forecast! Wednesday will be dry with sunshine and highs back into the 30 degree range. Thursday and Friday will be some of the warmest days of the week, but it will be followed by a cold front that pushes snow and cold air back into the forecast for Saturday. Snow starts on Friday night and runs through Saturday morning with enough accumulation for you to break out the snow shovel.
