Areas of fog, mist, and drizzle today will lead into an afternoon with strong to severe storms across the eastern plains. Storms starting near Trinidad will push east along and south of highway 50, possibly being severe through Las Animas and Baca counties. The more widespread rain through the Pikes Peak area and plains will return tonight after 10 pm and last into Wednesday morning.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 58; Low – 43. A stray afternoon and evening shower is possible but pretty unlikely. Moderate to heavy rain is likely after 10 pm through Wednesday morning.

PLAINS: High – 60s, Low – 40s. Storms will likely move east from the interstate today and stay mostly south of highway 50. Severe weather is possible, especially for Las Animas and Baca counties, with large hail and strong winds as the largest concern.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 60s, Low – 40s. Showers and storms possible around and just after lunch. Most of the rain in the region this afternoon will start near Trinidad and then quickly move east to the plains.
Heavy rain with thunder and lightning will push through tonight and linger into Thursday morning across the plains. We will see periods of rain from the morning to the afternoon Wednesday, but the bigger focus is the snow coming Wednesday night through Thursday morning. Snow will start over the mountains and high terrain early Wednesday night and then drop down near 6,200 feet through Thursday morning. Monument Hill, Teller County and the southern mountains are the most likely areas to see moderate accumulation, but Colorado Springs is likely to see snow all over town, but with limited accumulation. Thursday morning is likely to have slow commutes, with more light snow Thursday night to Friday morning.
