Tonight's Forecast: Clouds will increase late tonight as a storm brings Pacific moisture out of New Mexico and into Southern Colorado. Temperatures tonight will be quite cold, with lows dropping down to the teens across most areas.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 16; High: 35. Grab your heavy jacket on Thursday as you head out the door. Morning temperatures in the teens will give way to middle to upper 30s for the afternoon.

PUEBLO: Low: 14; High: 40. Thursday will be a colder and cloudier day across Pueblo County, with a few snow flurries possible towards the Huerfano County line.

CANON CITY: Low: 19; High: 41. Cold, cloudy and breezy on Thursday. Dry skies in town, with snow showers out west towards Salida and the Chaffee County mountains.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 12; High: 31. Very cold in the morning on Thursday for the higher elevations of Teller County, with highs only warming to near the freezing mark for Woodland Park and Florissant.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. Dry skies and cold temperatures on Thursday, with strong southerly breezes up towards the Palmer Divide.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 40s. Cloudy and cold on Thursday, with a mixed bag of precipitation possible. Best chances will be near the New Mexico state line.

Extended Outlook: After Thursday's cold and unsettled weather, a healthy boost in temperatures is expected by Friday. A second wave will bring more heavy snow to the mountains of Colorado, with wind the big story as we close out the week. The best chances other than the mountains locally of seeing any snow on Friday will be near Woodland Park, and points west. Travel into the high country on Friday will be slow and quite difficult, so plan accordingly and keep a close eye on the forecast.
