PUEBLO: Low: 19; High: 44. A few snow flurries could linger into Tuesday morning. Otherwise, Tuesday starts out very cold for mid-April standards and ends with sunshine and 40s for highs.

CANON CITY: Low: 20; High: 44. Tuesday's weather will be cold, but at least dry as our latest storm moves off to the southeast. After starting the day in the lower 20s, we'll top out in the middle 40s.

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 40s. A few morning snow showers will give way to sunshine and chilly highs for the afternoon. Bundle up if you have to go outside.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 10s; High: 40s. Lingering snow showers early will give way to decreasing clouds by Tuesday afternoon. Highs will be very cold for this time of the year, only warming into the 40s.

Extended Outlook: We'll see dry skies and nice warming on Wednesday before our next taste of wintry weather moves in late Wednesday night. This storm will bring in a reinforcing shot of cold Canadian air, along with snow to the Pikes Peak Region and Teller County. We'll likely see a rain/snow mix around Pueblo, Canon City and the southeast Plains. The storm exits by Friday morning, leaving us cool and dry as we head towards a weekend warm-up.
