Today’s Forecast:
Snow and rain showers will be moving out of the mountains through the morning and running east into the I-25 corridor and plains through the morning with a drier break expected toward lunchtime. Snow will stay mostly in the mountains in the morning where temperatures are colder, but we’ll still see snowfall in lower elevation areas like Canon City and Colorado Springs, at least for the first part of the morning. As mentioned, rain and snow showers will move east and dry out towards lunch, but in the plains east of El Paso and Pueblo counties, a few strong storms are going to be possible through the afternoon. Tonight we’ll be mainly dry other than a few isolated showers across the Pikes Peak region.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 56; Low – 38. Snow turning to rain in the morning with drier skies expected towards lunch. Scattered and isolated showers through the afternoon will be possible with a few stray showers also possible overnight.

PUEBLO: High – 64; Low – 41.  Rain, which could be heavy at times, will run through Pueblo in the morning with drier skies towards lunch and just a small chance for scattered showers in the afternoon. Despite a stray shower being possible overnight, the chances of staying dry are much higher.

CANON CITY: High – 62; Low – 42. Snow in the morning will turn to rain showers as temperatures slowly move above freezing. Scattered showers through the morning will dry out towards lunchtime with only a couple showers possible through the afternoon. The second half of the day looks much drier than the morning will be.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 51; Low – 33. Snow in the morning could be heavy at times but as like we’ll see with most of the region, drier skies are expected by lunchtime with a few scattered showers possible through the afternoon.

TRI-LAKES: High – 50s; Low – 30s. Snow and rain showers through the morning with drier skies towards lunch with scattered light showers expected into the afternoon.

PLAINS: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Showers and some stronger storms are possible in the afternoon, gusty winds and small hail are possible out of the biggest storms east of El Paso and Pueblo counties.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 60s; Low – 40s. A few scattered showers from the morning to the early afternoon are possible with a decent wind through the second half of the day.

A few isolated showers are possible especially through the Pikes Peak region overnight, but most of us will stay dry tonight. Wednesday will start dry but scattered showers with stronger winds are likely in the afternoon, especially around the Pikes Peak region. A few more scattered showers and thunderstorms are possible in the afternoon on Thursday, but dry skies are expected from Friday through Monday. Temperatures will generally keep warming with time and we are going to be back in the 70s by the weekend!
