Today’s Forecast:
Enjoy the calm weather today, because we start to get a bit more active tonight with a better push for snow returning Friday night to Saturday morning. Cloudy skies and highs a few degrees warmer than yesterday greet our afternoon with most areas seeing either the 30s or low 40s. Tonight, we’ll get light snow to push through the northern Sangres, Wets and across the Front Range. Teller and western Fremont county will get light snow with flurries possible across western Colorado Springs in the early morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 36; Low – 16. Cold and dry today but flurries are possible on the north and west side of town by early Friday morning, little to no impact is expected for the morning commute.

PUEBLO: High – 42; Low – 18. Cool and dry today with no snow expected overnight.

CANON CITY: High – 39; Low – 21. Cold and dry today but light snow returns to central and western Fremont county tonight with a stray flurry possible by Friday morning.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 30; Low – 10. Cold and dry tonight with light snow arriving around or after 10 pm and lingering into early Friday morning, a slick commute on highway 24 is possible on your way to work.

TRI-LAKES: High – 30s; Low – 10s. Dry and cold today but by early Friday morning, a few light snow showers are possible with minimal impacts to Friday morning’s drive.

PLAINS: High – 40s; Low – 10s. Mild and dry today with no snow expected overnight.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 40s; Low – 10s. Cold and dry today with no snow expected overnight.

Other than a few flurries or a light snow Friday morning, the majority of teh I-25 corridor and lower elevations will stay dry through the day. We can’t rule out an occasional snow shower in the afternoon around the Pikes Peak region, but the main passage of snow comes Friday night to Saturday morning. Snow totals look to stay light, generally at or under 1 inch for the I-25 corridor, 1 to 3 inches in the mountain valleys, 4 to 8 for the Sangres, 3 to 5 for the Wets and 1 to 4 for the plains closer to the Kansas border.

The rest of the weekend looks dry with warmer air returning into the middle of next week!
