Extended Outlook: Tuesday night won't be as cold as the airmass warms before our next storm arrives. Dry weather Wednesday morning, with precipitation moving in by late afternoon to early evening. The mountains should see all snow, whereas the lower elevations will see a changeover from rain to snow with this storm. Thursday morning will likely be slick and snowy, with snow continuing until the afternoon. Although we're getting a better handle on timing and amounts, exact details are still developing. The latest model runs are pushing for 2-5" amounts across the Pikes Peak Region, with higher amounts in the mountains. Stay tuned for details throughout the week on-air and online.
