Today’s Forecast:
Rain, some of which fell early this morning, will return from the afternoon through the overnight hours, but not for all of southern Colorado. The best areas for rain today will be along and especially west of I-25. Walsenburg to Trinidad will see the heaviest rain on the interstate, and the Sangre and Wet mountains will see the heaviest rain west of it. Elevations over 11,000 feet in the Wet and Sangre mountains could see very heavy snow tonight, even up to a foot in some locations. Snow will get mixed in with rain especially tonight but for elevations below 10,000 feet, little to no snow accumulation is expected through Tuesday morning. Rain will likely still be falling along I-25 south of Pueblo and as a rain/snow mixture in the mountains through Tuesday mid-morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 48; Low – 38. A couple of showers fell this morning but the better chance for widespread rain is from 5 to 10 pm today/tonight. Areas south of Woodmen Rd and west of I-25 have the best chance of seeing light rain later today and tonight, but after 6 pm all of the city could see light rain.

PUEBLO: High – 56; Low – 41.  Dry through the afternoon with a chance for showers and maybe a few rumbles of thunder from 7 pm through 11 pm. The chances for rain are far greater west of town into Fremont County and south closer to Colorado City.

CANON CITY: High – 50; Low – 40. Dry through the mid-afternoon with rain returning from late today through the overnight hours, but drier skies are expected after midnight. A few stray showers could pop up through Tuesday morning.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 38; Low – 31. Scattered showers pop up after 3 pm today and turn to snow overnight tonight, mainly after 7  pm. Despite what may be heavy snow at times, no accumulation is expected from due to warm air and roads.

TRI-LAKES: High – 40s; Low – 30s. A few showers fell in the morning but the better chance for rain remains from the afternoon through the evening hours. After 7 pm tonight it’s possible some snow could fall and get mixed in with rain, but no accumulation or driving impact is expected.

PLAINS: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Cloudy, windy and mainly dry skies are expected for all areas east of El Paso and Pueblo counties today and tonight. Any rain across the plains is most likely going to occur in Las Animas County, or areas very close to that county border.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 50s; Low – 30s. Stray showers are possible in the morning with heavy rain and even a few thunderstorms possible through the afternoon and overnight hours. Snow will be likely in the mountains west of I-25 but along the interstate, we’re just seeing rain. No hail threats are present but there could be plenty of late day lightning.

Rain and snow will linger in the I-25 corridor and southern mountains through Tuesday morning, but mostly dry skies are expected to fill the region through the afternoon. Wednesday is going to be GORGEOUS with dry, sunny skies and highs back into the 70s! A few afternoon storms are possible Thursday afternoon in the Pikes Peak region with a beautiful Friday on the way.
