We're in for a wild ride of weather over the next 24 hours here in southern Colorado. Temperatures will be really warm today thanks to strong westerly winds blowing between 30 to 40 mph out of the west. Overnight we'll see a cold front push temperatures down into the 20s with more strong winds, and light snow will follow.
We won't see much snow out of this system tonight and tomorrow morning, but there are some concerns of a flash freeze up in northern El Paso County. Most of the commutes tomorrow will be fine, just take it slow up to Denver to be safe pic.twitter.com/K5AKaiNtVy— Sam Schreier (@SamASchreier) February 3, 2021
