Winter Weather Advisory
Posted at 6:19 PM, Nov 06, 2019

Tonight’s Forecast: A powerful blast of cold air that arrived in Southern Colorado this afternoon will be followed up with a chance for overnight freezing drizzle and snow flurries. There's not a lot of moisture to work with here, but some spots that see the freezing drizzle could see icy streets and sidewalks by Thursday morning.

*Winter Weather Advisory* is in effect until 9 am Thursday along the I-25 corridor due to the potential of a light glaze of ice over roads, bridges and sidewalks.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 25; High: 39. Morning snow flurries and freezing drizzle may slow down your morning drive to work. Pay special attention to bridges and overpasses, which tend to freeze first. Dry skies and sunshine will follow for the afternoon.

PUEBLO: Low: 26; High: 41. A cold start to the day on Thursday, along with areas of freezing drizzle and snow flurries. Afternoon highs will cool quite a bit on Thursday, in spite of sunny afternoon skies.

CANON CITY: Low: 28; High: 43. Morning clouds and fog will give way to a bright, but chilly afternoon. Highs on Thursday will be about 20 degrees cooler than what we saw Wednesday.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 23; High: 43. Cold and cloudy in the morning, bright and chilly in the afternoon. A few snow flurries will be possible around sunrise before dry skies return.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 50s/60s. Winter Weather Advisories are in effect here until 8 am Thursday. The biggest concern from the freezing drizzle threat is for an icy coating to develop on some roads and sidewalks. Dry skies expected for the afternoon.

Extended Outlook: Dry skies and warmer temperatures on Friday, with highs up more than 20 degrees along and east of I-25. As we roll into the weekend, it gets even better. Sunny skies on Saturday and a beautiful forecast, with highs warming all the way into the 60s and 70s. Breezy and a little cooler on Sunday, with our next chance for snow showers and much colder air returning early next week.
