Today’s Forecast:
A cold front overnight has delivered flurries, strong wind, and deep cold to Colorado overnight. Not much more than flurries started falling past midnight, but two snow bands up in Denver could still bring another round of flurries or light snow over Monument Hill in the morning. The bigger story for southern Colorado is the cold and wind combining to drop wind chills into the single digits through the morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 28; Low: 15. Chance for flurries and light snow in the early morning with mostly dry skies, strong northerly winds, and cold temperatures. The winds will die off through the afternoon and the sun will come out, but with little effect on the temperatures.
PUEBLO: High: 30; Low: 12. A few stray flakes of snow in the morning with cold air and strong winds. The winds will relax and slow down in the afternoon with sunshine returning after lunch.

CANON CITY: High: 30; Low: 16. A few stray flurries are possible through the morning, but mostly dry skies, breezy conditions, and cold air are expected today. The sun will come out in the afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 28; Low: 17. Chance of flurries and light snow in the morning with cloudy skies breaking up for the afternoon. The winds will be breezy and the air will stay very cold.

TRI-LAKES: High: 20s; Low: 10s. Light snow overnight and early this morning could lead to a few slick commutes in the Tri-Lakes area, but final snow totals will stay at or under an inch through the morning. A band of snow pushing down from Denver could make for a bit more of a slick commute over the Hill and through the Gap, but not very much is expected. We'll be dry by mid morning and the sun will return in the afternoon.

PLAINS: High: 30s; Low: 10s. Very cold and windy in the morning with light snow to flurries possible in the plains north of highway 50, even though not much is expected to make it over the Palmer Divide. The sun will come out in the afternoon and the winds will back down.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 20s; Low: 10s. A few flurries possible through the morning but most of the time, we'll see dry and cold skies. Cloud cover will be replaced with sun through the afternoon and the winds will ease up in the afternoon.

Extended Outlook:
Very cold air is expected overnight with lows falling into the 20s and teens by Tuesday morning. We'll warm back up well Tuesday afternoon with highs into the 50s east of the mountains, and 60s by Wednesday. The next cold front is Thursday but with no snow, and temperatures only cooling by about 5 to 10 degrees. No snow or rain in the forecast until a mix of both next Saturday night to Sunday.
