Tonight's Forecast: Both the windy weather and the snow will taper this evening, with the snow exiting the Plains late tonight. Behind the storm, our skies will clear out pretty quickly after midnight, setting the stage for a very cold night across Southern Colorado. Lows will drop down to below zero in Woodland Park and the Teller County high country, with single digits and teens elsewhere.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 5; High: 40. Brutal cold temperatures Wednesday morning, with wind chill values likely below zero before sunrise. Speaking of the sun, we should see plenty of it as skies dry out over El Paso County.

PUEBLO: Low: 5; High: 44. Layer up in the morning as temperatures will start out in the single digits. Mild and pleasant for the afternoon, with highs in the middle 40s.

CANON CITY: Low: 8; High: 44. Single digit lows and a wind chill factor below zero will make for a bone-chilling start to the day. Highs will warm into the 40s under sunny skies.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: -2; High: 32. Morning lows will be below freezing around Woodland Park and Florissant. Wind chill values will be dangerously cold, so bundle up early.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 0s; High: 30s. With lows near zero Wednesday morning, it will start out very cold across northern El Paso County. Sunshine will offer up a nice afternoon, with finally much less wind in the forecast.

PLAINS: Low: 0s/10s; High: 40s. The snow will taper off early Wednesday morning, with a cold start to the day on tap. Highs will warm into the 40s under bright blue skies.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 0s; High: 30s/40s. We'll finally tap into some more sunshine on Wednesday. The good news is that it will be beautiful during the day. The bad news is that it will be very cold in the morning.

Extended Outlook: While early this week it has been active and wintry, our late week forecast will give us an early taste of spring. A weak system moving into the mountains will bring some snow to the higher elevations on Thursday and strong breezes to the Plains. Temperatures will moderate through the extended period, with highs topping out in the 50s and 60s in most areas by Friday and Saturday.
