Tonight's Forecast:
Increasing clouds tonight will push light snow into the high country, mainly for areas south of I-70 along the Continental Divide. It's possible that some precipitation could move into the Plains by Saturday morning, but this will be minimal as the storm is fairly weak.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 28; High: 50. Cloudy skies early will turn partly cloudy by the afternoon. Widespread precipitation is not likely, but a few sprinkles or snow flurries can't be ruled out early Saturday morning.

PUEBLO: Low: 30; High: 53. Morning clouds will give way to a mix of sun and clouds by Saturday afternoon. As moisture moves off of the mountains, it's possible that we could see a few rain/snow showers, especially for areas south of Highway 50.

CANON CITY: Low: 33; High: 52. A few overnight snow flurries will give way to a mix of sun and clouds by daybreak Saturday. Highs will be comparable to Friday, topping out in the lower 50s.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 24; High: 42. We may see a few overnight and early morning snow showers across the Teller County. The rest of the forecast on Saturday looks partly cloudy and seasonably chilly.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 40s. Other than a slight chance of snow flurries early on Saturday, our forecast will be dry, chilly and breezy for the start of the weekend.

PLAINS: Low: 30s; High: 40s/50s. As storm energy exits the mountains early Saturday, we have a decent chance of seeing some rain showers through the early afternoon, with the focus being well south of Highway 50.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 50s. Some light rain showers will be possible early on Saturday around Trinidad, but chances will be much slimmer for Huerfano County.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. Light snow during the overnight hours is expected to taper off by mid to late morning. This is not going to be a big snow maker for our mountains, with snow totals ranging from 1-4".

Extended Outlook:
Dry and colder on Sunday as a second cold front pushes into Southern Colorado. We'll pick up a little bit of wind on Monday as temperatures rebound by a good 15-20 degrees. High fire danger is possible as well on Monday before our next chance of rain and snow moves in on Tuesday. The unsettled weather clears out by Wednesday, with dry weather on tap through Thanksgiving Day.
