Today’s Forecast:
Rain and yes, SNOW, are both back in the forecast this morning! A deepening low-pressure system brought cold air into the mountains and we'll see bands of snow in Teller, Fremont, Custer, and north to western El Paso County through the morning hours.

Rain and a few thunderstorms will keep spinning across the plains longer into the afternoon as this whole system slowly moves east through Kansas.

The winds will stay strong today, but not with the 60 mph gusts that we saw overnight.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 64; Low: 39. Windy with rain through the morning and even a few flurries trying to mix down into the foothills west of town and areas up north closer to Monument and Black Forest through the morning with dry and mild afternoon skies.

PUEBLO: High: 69; Low: 40. Windy with rain and a few rumbles of thunder through the morning before this system moves east and we start to dry out in the afternoon.

CANON CITY: High: 70; Low: 45. Snow surrounding Canon City in the mountains but just windy and rainy through the morning before a dry and mild afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 56; Low: 34. Bands of snow with fairly light accumulations possible in the morning, mainly in grassy areas with the pavement too warm to see much if any snow stick to the ground. We'll be dry and warmer in the afternoon which will allow for melting. Freezing temps overnight could lead to a few icy spots.

TRI-LAKES: High: 50s; Low: 30s. A mix of rain and snow through the morning with plenty of gusty winds. Any snow that falls this morning will mainly just stick to the grassy areas with the pavement likely staying too warm for any snow collection on the roads. Temperatures tonight could freeze or get very close to it.

PLAINS: High: 60s; Low: 40s. Windy with rain and thunderstorms in the morning and bands of wrap-around rain through the mid-afternoon. Rain will move east of Colorado and we'll be dry towards the end of the day with a few very chilly overnight lows north of highway 50.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 60s; Low: 40s. Windy with a few rain showers through the morning and afternoon, but the bulk of our moisture will stay north and east of the region. We'll be dry and mild in the afternoon.

Extended Outlook:
Low temperatures tonight will dip down around freezing in parts of northern El Paso County and out in/around the mountain towns, so be sure and take care of your flowers if you think you'll be near a freeze.

Wednesday looks amazing with sunny skies and highs in the 70s to 80s across the lower elevations. Heat builds back in through the end of the week and out to the weekend, with a weak storm chance on Saturday.
