It's COLD out there this morning with lots of ice and frost on cars that were parked out in the open.
We need to be careful on some of the roads this morning due to snow and ice from yesterday. As the clouds cleared, temperatures dropped quickly, especially in the mountains and valleys. Teller County and areas south like the Wet Mountains, La Veta Pass, and Westcliffe could all have slick and icy pavement during the early morning drive.
We will see warmer weather this afternoon as the sun returns and the ground thaws. Highs will warm to the 50s and low 60s today with light winds.

Next week, we start warm and dry with Tuesday looking like the warmest day of the week.
A large low pressure trough will hit Colorado Thursday, bringing heavy snow to the mountains and at least a chance for some moisture along or just west of I-25. It'll be windy next Thursday, and if we don't see any moisture, we may be dealing with some fire danger.
