Tonight’s Forecast:
A very poor set up for snow has taken shape across southern Colorado and while we did see some snow showers pop up on radar Friday afternoon, not much made it to the ground in the Pikes Peak region. Overnight, energy and moisture from New Mexico will push back west against the mountains, squeezing out light snow along the I-25 corridor. Not much snow is expected by Saturday morning but a few areas like Monument Hill, Trinidad and the Wet & Sangre mountains could have some slick early drives. Temperatures will drop into the teens overnight with light wind.

Tomorrow’s Forecast:
A few flurries will likely be left in the region early Saturday morning but mainly dry skies will take over by mid-morning and last through lunch. The second round of scattered showers, some of which will be mixed with snow at elevations over 6,000 feet, will move through in the mid-afternoon. Any additional snow tomorrow will be minimal and likely only stick to grassy surfaces. A dry but cold night is expected with fairly light winds.
