Rain and drizzle will continue to fall across the lower elevations tonight with a rain and snow mixture expected through the southern mountains into Tuesday morning. Winter Storm Advisories are in place across the Sangre De Cristo mountain range above 11,000 feet with little to no accumulation expected in the surrounding towns and elevations below 10,000 feet through Tuesday morning. Rain will fall heaviest across the southern I-25 corridor of Walsenburg to Trinidad tonight with more of a drizzle or isolated shower from Pueblo to the Pikes Peak region. Areas like Rye, Westcliffe and Woodland Park will likely see periods of snow overnight, but with no accumulation from warm ground temperatures.
Tuesday is going to start foggy, drizzly and cold in the Pikes Peak region with scattered showers south of Walsenburg through Trinidad and a rain/snow mixture in the southern Sangre De Cristo range. Any fog and drizzle that develops in the Pikes Peak region and Pueblo in the morning will clear out through the morning, but energy south of Colorado will keep scattered showers from Walsenburg to Trinidad and the southern mountains going into Tuesday afternoon. At this time flooding across the southern burn scars is not expected, but the Spring burn scar will need to be carefully watched. The sun will come out in the late afternoon for most of the region with a cold, calm and dry night expected Tuesday.
