Tonight's Forecast:
A large storm system will move into Southern Colorado tonight, with snow and unseasonably cold temperatures arriving Sunday. No snow is expected to fall overnight tonight, but by Sunday morning, there could be a few flurries or areas of drizzle that form out ahead of the main storm later in the day.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 22; High: 26. A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect in El Paso County around the lunch hour Sunday and continue through Monday evening. Most of the snow that falls in the Springs will occur from Sunday afternoon through Monday afternoon.

PUEBLO: Low: 29; High: 31. Our weather will go downhill during the day on Sunday, with snow and cold in the forecast to close out the weekend. A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect at noon, and last through early Monday evening.

CANON CITY: Low: 30; High: 32. Cold, with wind and snow on Sunday. The morning should be pretty quiet, with snow expected to increase through the afternoon hours. A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect at noon for eastern Fremont County and continue through Monday evening.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 17; High: 22. Here comes winter! Snow, cold and wind will return to Teller County on Sunday, where a Winter Weather Advisory is set to go into effect at noon.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 10s; High: 20s. Old Man Winter will make a fierce return on Sunday, with snow, cold temperatures and gusty winds in the forecast. A Winter Weather Advisory will go into effect at noon, and last through Monday evening.

PLAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 20s/30s. Snow for the Plains will come a little later in the day on Sunday, with dry skies early in the morning and snowy skies by the afternoon and evening. Winter Weather Advisories will go into Sunday evening.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s/30s; High: 30s. Dry morning skies will give way to a snowy, windy and cold afternoon. Winter Storm Warnings will go into effect for Walsenburg at 6 pm, with a Winter Weather Advisory also set to go into effect for Trinidad at 6 pm. The heaviest snow is expected from Sunday evening through Monday afternoon.

Extended Outlook:
Waves of snow will continue to move into Southern Colorado on Monday before the storm finally drops far enough to the south to allow the snow machine to shut off. Snow totals look to be the highest over the mountains and mountain valleys. Some higher elevation areas could easily pick up more than a foot of snow. We're also likely to see narrow bands of heavier snow from this storm, with isolated totals potentially much higher.

The other big story will be the cold air that plunges into Southern Colorado with this system. Monday's highs will mostly be in the teens, and lows Monday night will largely be in the single digits. The rest of the week looks dry, with fall-like highs for the middle of the week giving to a warm-up as we move towards the weekend.
