Rough Weather to Start Your Work Week

Posted at 3:54 PM, Apr 28, 2019

Tonight’s Forecast:

The majority of the showers and thunderstorms that developed this afternoon will die off as the sun sets.  However, a cold font will be moving through the area tonight and could create a passing shower or thunderstorm during the overnight hours.  Clouds will stick around and temperatures will fall back into the lower 30s behind north winds.

Monday will feel starkly different from Sunday as we will be under cloudy skies with isolated sprinkles/mist.  Highs won’t reach much out of the 40s.  After lunch, showers and storms will build in the mountains and work their way onto I-25 and the Eastern Plains.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 36; Low – 36. Cloudy with isolated showers early, scattered rain late in the day.

PUEBLO: High – 54; Low – 41.  Cloudy with isolated showers early, scattered rain late in the day.

CANON CITY: High – 54; Low – 39. Cloudy with isolated showers early, scattered rain late in the day.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 42; Low – 47. Cloudy with a scattered mix of rain and snow showers.

TRI-LAKES: High – 40s; Low – 30s. Cloudy with scattered snow showers late.  Possible overnight accumulation by Tuesday morning of 2-3 inches.

PLAINS: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Cloudy with scattered rain showers.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 50s; Low – 30s. Cloudy with scattered rain and snow showers.


By suppertime on Monday, rain showers will have worked their way down from the mountains.  Rain will be with us through the night, gradually changing over to snow as the rain/snow line drops to below 7,000 ft.  Minor accumulation is expected in northern Colorado Springs with 2-3 inches in and along the Palmer Divide.  The snow is not expected to stick, but will be noticeable on the grassy areas.

Tuesday morning, a surge of pacific moisture and warm are works into Colorado.  This will bring a brief break in the precipitation and change any lingering snow showers back over to rain showers.  We’ll keep the chance for late day showers and a chance of thunder for Tuesday, with highs back into the 50s.

Wednesday, the storm will clear out early and our highs will jump back into the 70s.  Mostly sunny and warming Thursday into next weekend.
