Today’s Forecast:
A cloudy day will lead to a gloomy feel across southern Colorado with mild daytime temperatures and periods of light rain or flurries through the region. Heavy snow is expected to pick up over the mountains today and last into the overnight hours, leading to slick and slow drives out west. Here at home, we will see mostly dry skies along I-25, but we still have to keep the chance of seeing an isolated flurry or sprinkle in the morning. The best chance for rain will be in the afternoon over the plains east of Pueblo County and Trinidad.
