Today’s Forecast:
Snow in the Pikes Peak Region from last night will move northeast out of the way through the early morning hours, but we will have areas of fog develop behind the snow.

More snow will move in from the southwest, spreading first through the southern mountains and then up into the Pueblo and Pikes Peak Region by 7 to 8 am. This second wave of snow could dump another 1 to 3 inches in the Pikes Peak Region, and another 2 to 4 inches from Pueblo down to Trinidad.

Snow will end tonight and dangerously cold temperatures will move in by early Wednesday morning. Lows are forecast to be in the single digits and a few negatives.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 23; Low: 6. Cold with more snow today from the morning and mostly dry skies in the afternoon. A few wrap around flurries are possible this evening, but with little to no extra accumulation. 1 to 3 inches is possible across Colorado Springs, but the heavier snow will likely favor the south half of town.

PUEBLO: High: 25; Low: 3. Cold and snowy today with snow in the morning and mostly dry skies in the afternoon. We could see a few wrap around flurries late today and this evening, but most of our 2-4 inches today will fall in the morning.

Most of this snow will fall this morning and early this afternoon with just a few wrap around flurries on the Front Range. We should see around 3-5 around La Veta and Cuchara and around 3-6 inches from Rye to San Isabel. It'll be incredibly cold tonight.

Extended Outlook:
We'll be warmer and dry on Wednesday with sunshine melting snow that falls today. Temperatures should rebound nicely into the 50s and even a few 60s by Friday with dry skies. We should stay dry this weekend and just be a little windy on Saturday from a cool front.
