Tonight's Forecast: Mostly clear skies early this evening will turn overcast during the overnight hours in advance of our next storm system. Snow showers will develop in the mountains after midnight, with some light snow or rain possible east of the mountains by early tomorrow morning. Precipitation will pick up across Southern Colorado by late morning, with most of the snow from this storm staying up towards the Continental Divide.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 33; High: 44. Thursday will be wet and unsettled, with rain and snow showers mixed during the day. Impacts will be minimal from this storm, with snow totals expected to stay under an inch.

PUEBLO: Low: 32; High: 48. Even with a low tomorrow morning near freezing, the precipitation that arrives on Thursday will fall mostly in the form of rain in Pueblo. Highs will warm into the upper 40s, with increasing wind late in the day.

CANON CITY: Low: 35; High: 49. Unsettled and cool weather on Thursday, with a rain/snow mix possible during the day. A trace of snow will be possible by the time the storm wraps up, with most falling as rain from this storm.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 28; High: 35. Snow is expected for the high country on Thursday. The forecast in Woodland Park is calling for 1-3", with snow picking up around sunrise, and tapering off around sunset.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 30s. Snow chances will be higher on Monument Hill and the Palmer Divide on Thursday than what we'll see in the Springs. With temperatures in the 30s all day tomorrow, it will be cold. Snow totals are expected to range from a trace to 2".

PLAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 40s/50s. Thursday's storm system will be fairly warm across the Plains, with rain on tap for the afternoon hours. As the storm departs Thursday night, it's possible that a quick dusting of light snow could fall.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 40s/50s. We're primarily looking at a rain event for southern parts of the state on Thursday. Snow could mix in at times, but with daytime highs in the 40s and low 50s, little to no accumulation is expected.

Extended Outlook: Dry skies will return by Thursday night and should continue through the weekend. Friday morning's lows behind the storm will be cold, with highs on Friday also quite chilly. A big boost in temperatures on Saturday will push many areas back into the 60s. Sunday looks great as well, but windy as a storm moves into the mountains. Snow will be possible over the Colorado Rockies from Sunday through next Tuesday, and should be quite beneficial for the ski resorts. Our weather will remain mostly dry, with just a few flurries possible next Monday.
