Today is the coldest day we've seen here in southern Colorado in almost 100 years for some people! Colorado Springs broke the record cold of -8° this morning, a record set back in 1895! Pueblo stayed just shy of the current record of -23°.
Sunshine and warming flow off the mountains will attempt to push high temperatures into the single digits and teens today with some of the warmest air in the state on the west side of the Continental Divide. We will stay dry today with lows falling back into the single digits and lows overnight.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 15; Low: 8. Dangerous cold in the morning with a mix of sunshine and clouds throughout the day. We'll have light winds and dry skies. Overnight lows will fall back to the single digits with dry skies and increasing clouds.
PUEBLO: High: 12; Low: 4. Dangerous cold through the morning with sunny skies not helping temperatures much today. We'll keep light winds and increase clouds overnight with lows back in the low single digits.
CANON CITY: High: 28; Low: 12. Really cold through the morning but not too bad in the afternoon under sunny skies. We'll get cloudy overnight with lows in the teens.
WOODLAND PARK: High: 27; Low: 12. Cold this morning with continued chilly air through the afternoon. We'll keep light winds today and tonight with lows down into the teens.
TRI-LAKES: High: 20s; Low: <10. Dangerous cold through the morning and still just plain cold into the afternoon. We'll stay cold and dry today with lows in the single digits tonight.
PLAINS: High: <10; Low: <0. Exceptionally cold through the morning with negatives lasting into the lunch hour. We'll try and pop temperatures up above zero today, but that will be difficult under this arctic air. Temperatures tonight will dive into the negatives again with wind chills in the -10 to -20 degree range.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 20s; Low: 10s. Dangerous cold in the morning with extra chills in the air through lunchtime. We'll be cold and dry tonight with increasing cloud cover.
MOUNTAINS: High: 20/30s; Low: 10s. Very cold in the morning and dry today with increasing clouds and more of a daytime breeze. We'll be very cold again tonight with lows in the teens.
The cold will start to fade this week but we still have enough for snow. There's a chance on Tuesday and Wednesday, but most of the accumulation below will fall Wednesday.
More snow is in the forecast this week, but most of it will fall Wednesday. We're only seeing a little on Tuesday with the bulk falling Wednesday afternoon and evening. pic.twitter.com/EDqZ6uNvvx— Sam Schreier (@SamASchreier) February 15, 2021
We should get a lot warmer by the end of the week with 40s and 50s possible by Saturday!
