Snowfall accumulation for 2/7/2020
Snowfall accumulation for 2/7/2020

Snow bands will continue falling from Fremont County east through Pueblo and Otero counties in the early morning hours, with additional snow bands likely to develop later this morning in El Paso County and areas north of highway 50. The second band of snow in and around El Paso County will have the potential to drop another 2 to 5 inches of snow through the early afternoon.

For now, the heaviest snow in this band looks to stay just east of Monument and Colorado Springs, but it would only take a 10 mile shift west to boost snow totals by another 2 inches or so.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 29; Low: 16. Additional snow, and possible heavy bands of snow are set to form over the Pikes Peak Region from the morning through the early afternoon. The heaviest snow band will likely set up east of Colorado Springs, but another 1 to 2 inches is possible across most of town. If that snow band shift west, we could see more widespread 2 to 3 inches totals.

PUEBLO: High: 35; Low: 13. Once the snow band from Fremont County through Pueblo County stops early this morning, additional light snow is possible from the morning through the early afternoon. Additional snowfall would likely be at or under 1 inch.

CANON CITY: High: 36; Low: 24. Moderate to heavy snow early in the morning will fade, with more light snow possible from the mid morning to the early afternoon. Any additional snow after the current heavy morning band could bring an inch or less past lunchtime.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 31; Low: 17. Light snow returns through the morning hours, but the heaviest snow bands later today will probably be east in El Paso County. Still, this could lead to another 1 to 2 inches of snow from the morning through the early afternoon.

TRI-LAKES: High: 20s; Low: 10s. Heavy snow bands likely set up around and especially just east of the Tri-Lakes area this morning and continue into the early afternoon. We will see a general 1 to 3 inches possible across most of the Tri-Lakes area, but a small shift in the eastern El Paso County snow band could add another 1 to 2 inches to those totals.

PLAINS: High: 30s; Low: 10s. Heavy snow bands over the plains will diminish early in the morning, with light snow possible from the late morning and early afternoon. Most of the snow later today will occur north of highway 50, especially near El Paso County.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 30s; Low: 10s. Light snow will continue to fall early in the morning with generally dry conditions or just light flurries through the rest of the day. Most roadways that saw snow will hold it today until the plows can clean them from temperatures staying at or below freezing.

Extended Outlook:
We'll clear the snow and cloud cover out today, leading to a very cold night with temperatures dropping easily into the teens. Saturday is going to be sunny and very warm with temperatures up into the 40s and a few low 50s during the afternoon. The next chance for snow arrives Sunday night into Monday morning. We'll see another chance Monday night into Tuesday morning.
