Rainy Start to the Work Week

Posted at 3:08 PM, Apr 21, 2019

Tonight’s Forecast:

Unsettled weather will stick with us for the next couple of days.  Round 1 of the rain will come to an end by midnight.  The greatest chance remains along the Palmer Divide and Northward while everyone south will see an isolated chance southward.  Lows tonight will fall back into the lower 40s and upper 30s under partly to mostly cloudy skies.

On Monday, our temperatures won’t budge much.  Afternoon highs will reach into the upper 40s to lower 50s.  Expect morning cloudy cover with an isolated rain shower or mist along I-25 as moisture gets slammed against the mountains.   A few breaks of sun are not out of the question, but by the afternoon, redevelopment of showers and storms is expected in the mountains.  Some will spread east along I-25, but they’re not expected to last on the plains as they will run into more stable air.  Since the majority of the activity will remain along the mountainous areas, some locally heavy rain and snow is possible.  The snow line is expected to be above 7000 ft.  Central and Southern mountains will take the brunt of the weather, with heavier amounts Huerfano and Western Las Animas counties.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 48; Low – 40. Mostly Cloudy with isolated shower chances in the morning, redeveloping in the afternoon.

PUEBLO: High – 55; Low – 44. Mostly Cloudy with isolated thunderstorms in the afternoon.

CANON CITY: High – 47; Low – 42. Mostly Cloudy with scattered showers and isolated thunder.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 39; Low – 33. Cloudy with a scattered mix of rain and snow.

TRI-LAKES: High – 30s; Low – 30s. Cloudy with a scattered mix of rain and snow, isolated thunder.

PLAINS: High – 50s; Low – 40s. Mostly cloudy and breezy.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 40s; Low – 40s. Cloudy with showers and storms developing late in the day.


Tuesday will be a day of transition.  As high pressure works into the state, clouds will recede from north to south.  Mostly cloudy conditions will prevail as rain and snow gradually come to an end in the mountains by midday.  Highs will rebound a few degrees into the mid and upper 50s.  Starting Wednesday, a warming trend will begin and sunshine will return in full force.  Expect 70s and some 80s by next weekend!
