Today’s Forecast: After a few not so nice weather days, most of our Saturday will actually be pretty great. If you need some fresh air, plan for a hike early in the day before our next storm moves in. This storm is pretty weak, and will only spread scattered rain and snow showers into Southern Colorado late this afternoon and evening. There could even be a few thunderstorms over the southeastern Plains later today.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 49; Low: 28. We'll be pretty close to our seasonal average this afternoon in the Springs, which for today is 53 degrees. A mix of rain and snow showers will be possible from late this afternoon into this evening, with only minor accumulations.

PUEBLO: High: 57; Low: 32. Mostly sunny skies early will give way to scattered rain showers and thunder late this afternoon and evening.

CANON CITY: High: 54; Low: 33. Dry and mild on Saturday, with scattered rain and snow showers late this afternoon and this evening.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 43; Low: 21. Dry this morning, with increasing snow showers on tap for the afternoon and evening hours. Snow totals in Teller County from 1-3".

TRI-LAKES: High: 40s; Low: 20s. Mild highs today, with increasing clouds this afternoon and a chance for some late afternoon and evening snow showers. Snow totals from a trace to 2".

PLAINS: High: 50s/60s; Low: 30s. It will be a mild start to the weekend, with isolated showers and thunderstorms possible this afternoon and evening.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 50s; Low: 30s. Saturday will bring us a mix of sun and clouds, with scattered showers and thunderstorms this afternoon. Light snow showers will be possible this evening before the storm winds down.

Extended Outlook: Our weekend will end on a dry and warmer note, with highs on Sunday warming into the lower 60s for Pueblo and Canon City. Further warming is expected early next week, with periods of gusty wind across Southern Colorado. This warm and windy pattern could bring high fire danger to the Plains and Arkansas River Valley at times next week. Colder air and unsettled weather follows late next week.
