Tonight's Forecast:
We'll see a relatively quiet night, with light winds expected to keep overnight lows more mild than a typical late February night. These winds could be occasionally gusty across the Arkansas River Valley and over the higher elevations.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 26; High: 60. Dry and mild on Tuesday, with the potential for one of the warmest days of the month. An evening cold front will bring increasing clouds to the Pikes Peak Region and a chance for freezing drizzle after midnight.

PUEBLO: Low: 23; High: 65. Warming on Tuesday, with increasing clouds expected by the evening and a chance for freezing drizzle after midnight.

CANON CITY: Low: 27; High: 64. Unseasonably warm and breezy on Tuesday ahead of a cold front that could bring freezing drizzle to parts of Fremont County by early Wednesday morning.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 24; High: 52. Warmer than normal on Tuesday, with occasional gusts to 35 mph across Teller County. Dry through Tuesday night, with snow back by Wednesday.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 50s. Sunshine early will give way to increasing clouds out ahead of our next cold front. Behind the cold front, there's a chance that freezing drizzle will develop late Tuesday night.

PLAINS: Low: 20s; High: 60s. A warm for February day on Tuesday should be enjoyed by all before our forecast turns much colder with a chance for snow on Wednesday.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 50s. Breezy and mild during the day, with increasing clouds Tuesday night as a cold front drops in from the north.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. It will remain windy across the mountains of Southern Colorado. Snow is not expected in the area on Tuesday, but that will change Wednesday as our next storm pushes in from the west.

Extended Outlook:
With the potential for freezing drizzle through Wednesday morning, the commute early Wednesday could be icy in spots. Snow will follow beginning Wednesday afternoon and evening. Our First Alert 5 weather team is still watching the potential for a pretty big snowfall across parts of Southern Colorado. The snow should wrap up early Thursday, but it stays cold. Dry and slightly warmer weather returns Friday and Saturday which should help to melt some of that snow away.
