Today’s Forecast:
We started the early morning with a few flurries over Teller County!

Most of the day will be dry, windy, and chilly with highs in the 50s and low 60s. Wind gusts will be in the 10 to 20 mph range out of the south and southwest.

We will stay dry locally today, but there could be some snow that hits the Sangre De Cristo mountains. Most of the snow will fall along I-70 today and tonight, with tonight being the trickiest and most difficult travel period.

Colorado Springs forecast: High: 57; Low: 33. Mostly cloudy, cool, and windy with gusts in the 20 mph range. We will stay dry today but a little snow could fall on the summit of Pikes Peak.

Extended outlook forecast:
Thursday will be a day of strong wind, rain, and snow!

A winter system will spin across the region through the day Thursday, bringing 30 to 40 mph wind gusts out of the north across the plains. Rain and snow showers are expected during the daytime with the heaviest snow in the mountains and valleys. North winds will likely rob Colorado Springs and Pueblo of snowfall accumulation, but there could still be flakes or showers in both cities.

Friday will be dry with a hard freeze in the morning. We'll stay dry and beautiful through the weekend with plenty of dry weather!
