Today’s Forecast: Clear skies behind yesterday's snow storm has left us with record cold temperatures. Colorado Springs has set a new record of 11 degrees this morning, with Pueblo setting a record at 18 degrees. Sunshine and dry skies will help to warm temperatures into the 40s and 50s today. Wind will be light, coming out of the west and southwest through the afternoon.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High - 48; Low - 22. Record cold this morning for the Springs, with a Freeze Warning in effect until 9 am. The afternoon hours will be bright and sunny, but well below average for this time of the year.

PUEBLO: High - 54; Low - 19. A new record low temperature has been set for Pueblo today. With yesterday's storm moving away from Colorado, temperatures will stay below average.

CANON CITY: High - 54; Low - 27. A Freeze Warning for Canon City should be allowed to expire at 9 am. Afternoon highs will warm into the mid 50s under mostly sunny skies.

TRI-LAKES: High - 40s; Low - 10s/20s. Sunshine and snow melt will be the story today. With overnight lows dropping back down to the 10s and 20s, some surfaces may refreeze this evening.

PLAINS: High - 50s; Low - 10s/20s. Mostly sunny skies and breezy west winds will make for a nice day today in the Plains. Dry skies and cold temperatures return tonight, with lows in some spots back down to the teens.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High - 50s; Low - 20s. Highs today will warm into the 50s near the New Mexico border. Bundle up tonight if you have plans outside as it will be quite cold.

Extended Outlook:
Another round of sub-freezing temperatures will return Saturday morning, but with high pressure building in from the Pacific Northwest, it won't be as cold as this morning. Both the overnight lows and our daytime highs will warm through the weekend, with a return of 70s by Sunday. Monday will be even warmer and windy, with Red Flag Warning conditions possible early next week. Cooler and breezy weather follows on Tuesday. No rain or snow is expected over the next seven days.
