Today’s Forecast:
Snow overnight will continue to fall as a light snow to flurry through the morning, but the heavier pockets have stayed over El Paso County. The air temperatures are well below freezing, so most untreated pavement will stay snow covered while the snow continues to fall. We'll see snow thin out mid morning through lunch, but return later today and continue overnight.

Below are broken down snow totals through the region.

Snowfall expected from 4/13-4/14 2020

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 32; Low: 16. Colorado Springs and the surrounding towns will see light snow to flurries through the morning, with a bit of a break towards lunch. Snow will start to fall in the afternoon and really pick up from the end of the day through the evening. The highest totals will generally be west of I-25. Any untreated roads will stay snow covered or icy today and tonight.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 28; Low: 4. Woodland Park will see spotty and weak flurries through the morning but better snow will return after lunch. We'll see heavier accumulation from the end of the day through the evening hours. Snow totals will be highest on highway 24 drives east into El Paso County. Temperatures will be cold enough for any untreated pavement to stay snow covered or icy.

TRI-LAKES: High: 20s; Low: <10. Light and spotty flurries in the morning will dry up through the morning and lunch time, but return stronger after lunch. The heavier and accumulating snow will arrive later this afternoon and evening, making any return trips from Denver slick and slow. Any road with water or snow will stay snow covered or freeze overnight from very cold daytime temperatures.

Snowfall expected from 4/13-4/14 2020

PUEBLO: High: 39; Low: 20. Occasional flurries during the daytime, but most of the snow that comes to and through pueblo will fall later this evening. Snow totals will be low, but even an inch with the deep overnight cold could lead to a few slick spots in town.

CANON CITY: High: 39; Low: 20. Stray flurries are likely during the day but the bulk of our light snow will fall this evening across Canon City and the surrounding towns. We won't see much accumulation, but those of you commuting into and around the Wet Mountains should plan on heavy snow starting in the afternoon and continuing through the evening.

PLAINS: High: 30/40s; Low: 10s. We will see spotty flurries during the day today, but most of the light snow across the plains will fall later this evening and continue into the overnight hours. Most accumulations will be light, and the map at the top of this story shows Baca County as the most likely area to see over 1".

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 30s; Low: 10s. We'll see occasional flurries through the morning but the next round of accumulating snow will fall starting this afternoon in the mountains and pushing out to I-25 through the evening. The heaviest snow will be along but mainly west of Walsenburg and Aguilar, especially over La Veta Pass and down into La Veta and Cuchara. Any drives late today and tonight will likely be slick from very cold and freezing daytime temperatures.

Extended Outlook:
We're going to be dry but cold on Tuesday, with more dry skies expected through Wednesday. The next snow chance this week arrives Thursday afternoon and continues into the overnight hours. Friday is going to be chilly and dry. The weekend looks awesome with highs in the 60s and 70s under more sunshine!
