Tonight's Forecast: Mostly clear to partly cloudy skies early will turn overcast during the overnight hours. In advance of Thursday's winter storm, an influx of moisture could produce some snow flurries and drizzle tomorrow morning. With the cloud cover in tonight's forecast, overnight lows will remain above average across Southern Colorado.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 29; High: 54. Cloudy skies, with areas of drizzle and snow flurries early on Wednesday. This will give way to some late afternoon clearing, with highs warming into the middle 50s.

PUEBLO: Low: 24; High: 57. A cold and cloudy morning will give way to partly cloudy skies and mild highs. Light winds on Wednesday out ahead of Thursday's storm.

CANON CITY: Low: 33; High: 57. Cloudy, with areas of drizzle and snow flurries possible Wednesday. Better clearing by the afternoon will push temperatures into the upper 50s.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 23; High: 45. A cold and gray start, with some light snow flurries possible during the morning. Mostly cloudy skies will persist through the afternoon, with highs in the middle 40s.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 40s. Other than a chance for some morning drizzle or flurries, we're looking at a dry and pleasant Wednesday across the Tri-Lakes.

PLAINS: Low: 20; High: 50s/60s. Dry skies will continue across the Plains on Wednesday. Daytime highs will be nice and mild for this time of the year, topping out in the upper 50s and 60s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s/30s; High: 50s/60s. Moisture moving in from New Mexico could bring a few snow flurries or some drizzle to the forecast in the morning. Dry skies and mild highs follow for the afternoon.

Extended Outlook: After almost a week of dry weather, our next chance for rain and snow finally arrives after midnight on Thursday. Snow levels will be around the 5,000 to 6,000 foot level, so in the lower elevations, this could be a rain event or a rain/snow mixture. Impacts will be fairly minimal as there's not a lot of moisture to work with. Accumulations will be highest in the mountains, and the along the Palmer Divide and Raton Mesa, where a few inches of snow could fall. Dry skies and chilly temperatures follow on Friday with a much warmer day on tap for our Saturday.
