Tonight’s Forecast: A powerful blast of cold air will cause temperatures to drop significantly tonight as overnight lows will be the coldest of the month so far. Some areas could even single digit readings by sunrise Tuesday, including around Pueblo. Wind chill numbers could approach zero in some areas overnight tonight.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 10; High: 56. Bitterly cold air Tuesday morning, with lots of layers the way to go early in the day. The afternoon will be bright and mild, with temperatures warming into the 50s.

PUEBLO: Low: 9; High: 58. Single digits early Tuesday morning will make for a very cold start to the day. Fortunately with plenty of sunshine ahead, we'll warm up by nearly 50 degrees by mid-afternoon.

CANON CITY: Low: 13; High: 58. Teens in the morning. Upper 50s during the day. Dress in layers and enjoy the sunshine and dry skies.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 7; High: 53. Winter-like temperatures will continue through Tuesday morning. Highs will warm up nicely during the day, with sunshine aplenty on tap around Teller County.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 10s; High: 50s. It will be quite cold during the morning hours, but a nice and mild day follows for the afternoon. Highs look to rebound to the 50s on Tuesday.

PLAINS: Low: 0s/10s; High: 50s. Brutally cold morning lows will warm under the influence of high pressure and sunshine. Highs should top out in the middle to upper 50s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 10s; High: 50s/60s. It will be an unseasonably cold morning, with temperatures around sunrise down in the teens. Expect sunshine and mild highs for the afternoon.

Extended Outlook: Tuesday's mild airmass will continue to moderate on Wednesday, with temperatures above average through the middle of the week. A dry cool front will bring an increase in wind Wednesday night into Thursday, along with a modest decrease in temperatures. Friday looks dry and warmer before our next chance for wintry weather returns this weekend. For now, the best chances are from late Saturday through early Sunday. We're watching it closely, so stay tuned both on-air and online for updates.
