Tonight's Forecast:
Early this evening will still be windy in some areas, but the strong winds are expected to decrease later tonight. Once the winds weaken, we'll see a quiet and calm night for Southern Colorado. Overnight lows will be chilly however, cooling all the way down to the 10s and 20s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 19; High: 54. Sunshine will be in fully supply across the Pikes Peak Region on Monday as highs rebound nicely from the weekend, topping out in the middle 50s.

PUEBLO: Low: 17; High: 58. Layer up on Monday as you head out the door. We'll start the day with temperatures in the teens, and end the day with highs in the upper 50s.

CANON CITY: Low: 20; High: 57. The final week of February will start out with a nice and mild Monday, but don't get to used to it as snow will return to the forecast by the middle of the week.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 15; High: 47. Our work week will start out simply beautiful over Teller County, with blue skies and mild afternoon temperatures.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 10s; High: 40s/50s. Sunny skies, light winds and mild afternoon highs on Monday. Tuesday will be even warmer before the snow moves in Wednesday.

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 50s/60s. Sunny, mild and breezy on Monday. Some locations across the southeast Plains are likely to warm into the lower 60s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 10s; High: 50s. Monday's forecast will be just gorgeous across the southern I-25 corridor as highs will warm well into the 50s.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 0s/10s; High: 30s/40s. Breezy west/northwest winds for the mountains on Monday, with peak gusts 25-35 mph.

Extended Outlook:
Tuesday will be the warmest day of the forecast period as some areas climb into the 60s. Our next storm will push into Southern Colorado on Wednesday and this one is shaping up to be a pretty good snow maker for us. Snow will fall in some areas through Thursday morning, with the Wednesday evening and Thursday morning commutes already looking like a mess. Friday's forecast will turn warmer as the storm pulls away and we try to melt some of that snow away heading into the weekend.
