Tonight's Forecast:
Thankfully it won't be as cold tonight as the airmass moderates and cloud cover thickens up from a storm to the south. This storm system will bring scattered rain and snow showers to our southern counties tonight, with increased coverage towards sunrise Wednesday.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 19; High: 48. With lows dropping down to the teens Wednesday, some side streets and neighborhoods may again be icy during the morning commute. The afternoon will be more mild, and generally dry as the bulk of the rain and snow should stay well south of the Pikes Peak Region.

PUEBLO: Low: 19; High: 44. Other than a weak chance of an isolated rain shower or snow flurry, our Wednesday should be dry, but overcast. Highs will warm into the middle 40s, with snowmelt taking place throughout the afternoon hours.

CANON CITY: Low: 21; High: 45. We've got one more really cold morning to get through before a warmer shift in our weather pattern late this week. Wednesday will be mostly cloudy, with rain or snow not expected.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 16; High: 45. Bundle up as it will be downright cold in the morning. Highs will continue to warm on Wednesday across Teller County, with snow not likely.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 10s; High: 40s. Wednesday will be partly cloudy and breezy, with snow not expected in our part of the state. Lows will be in the teens, with highs rebounding to the 40s.

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. The weather on the Plains on Wednesday will vary by location. As an upper level low pressure system moves into the Southern Plains from New Mexico, rain, snow and freezing drizzle will be possible across southeastern parts of the state. A Winter Weather Advisory has been issued for Baca and eastern Las Animas counties, lasting through early Wednesday evening.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 30s/40s. Morning snow showers will give way to a mix of rain and snow by the afternoon. Not much precipitation is expected over the area, but a few inches may fall across parts of Las Animas County.

Extended Outlook:
Once the storm exits Wednesday night into Thursday morning, a dry weather pattern will settle back into Southern Colorado. Highs will moderate late this week, leading to a gorgeous fall-like weekend for all areas. A dry cold front will likely lead to some cooler and breezier weather Saturday night and Sunday, but it won't last long as a sizable warm-up is expected early next week.
