Tonight's Forecast: Clearing skies will bring another cold night to Southern Colorado. The good news is that lows will be anywhere between 8 and 15 degrees warmer than last night. Records should not be threatened.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 21; High: 55. No threat of record lows on Wednesday. Instead, we'll see 20s in the morning and middle 50s by the afternoon.

PUEBLO: Low: 20; High: 62. Cold morning lows will give way to a partly sunny and mild day. Increasing clouds Wednesday night will transition to a wintry mix by Thursday.

CANON CITY: Low: 23; High: 61. After our recent string of colder than average days, Wednesday will be beautiful. We'll see a mix of sun and clouds and lower 60s for highs.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 14; High: 47. Wednesday's forecast will offer up one more dry day before winter stages its comeback on Thursday with snow and cold.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 10s; High: 40s. A cold start to our Wednesday will turn mild and pleasant by the afternoon. Snow and cold moves in on Thursday.

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 50s/60s. Dry skies and a little breezy on Wednesday, with near critical fire weather conditions possible. Highs will be nice and mild.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 50s. Dry, mild and breezy weather returns on Wednesday. Highs will climb into the 50s.

Extended Outlook: After a few dry days, winter makes its return on Thursday. This storm will favor the Pikes Peak Region and the southeastern mountains with the highest amounts. A good 1-4" of snow will be possible in Colorado Springs, with lesser amounts south along I-25, where the storm will likely start out as rain. Other than a few mountain snow showers, dry and chilly weather returns on Friday before a nice warm-up commences this weekend.
