Drier skies will take over southern Colorado from the morning to the early afternoon with one last push of rain and snow through the evening hours. Rain and high elevation snow will start in the mid-afternoon, first in the Sangre De Cristo and Wet mountains, then spread out to the interstate as we head into the evening. Yes, snow is possible, but it looks incredibly light for elevations under 10,000 feet. We’ll start Saturday dry but with temperatures back in the low to mid-30s.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 48; Low – 36. Patchy fog and cloudy today with a few late day showers, but most of our rain returns this evening. There will be some snow mixed with rain on the north side of town but with only a dusting showing up in the grass.
PUEBLO: High – 52; Low – 39. Cloudy, cool and dry for most of today but we’ll see light showers try to return late today, but more likely through the evening hours. No snow is expected overnight.
CANON CITY: High – 50; Low – 38. Dry with patchy fog in the morning until the afternoon and evening when rain and light showers push back into town. Light snow could fall this evening by Cotopaxi and Texas Creek, but Canon City should just see rain through the evening.
WOODLAND PARK: High – 42, Low – 28. Cloudy, cold but dry from the morning to the early afternoon. A rain/snow mix will quickly turn to light snow late today through the evening hours, but snow totals overnight look very light, generally at or under one inch.
TRI-LAKES: High – 40s, Low – 20s. Patchy, dense fog in the morning with cold and dry skies from the morning to the early afternoon. Showers will return late today through the evening hours. Rain could be mixed with a bit of snow this evening, but no more than a dusting is expected.
PLAINS: High – 50s, Low – 30s. Other than a few stray showers from the morning and then again this evening, most areas east of El Paso and Pueblo County, as well as Baca County, will stay dry but cloudy and cool.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 40s, Low – 30s. Flurries in the morning over the Sangres west of Walsenburg to Trinidad but we’ll stay mostly dry from the morning to the early afternoon along the southern I-25 corridor. Heavier rain and snow will return to the mountains but only scattered showers are expected from Walsenburg to Trinidad through the evening.
Saturday will start dry, and we’ll actually see quite a bit of sunshine through the morning into the afternoon! A few showers are possible over the mountains of the Pikes Peak region, but Colorado Springs should stay dry. Better sunshine returns on Sunday with warmer temperatures. Highs will run into the 70s and 80s next week, but we could see a few showers on Tuesday and Wednesday.
