Tonight's Forecast: With the last of the snow flurries winding down this evening, clearing skies will lead to excellent radiational cooling across Southern Colorado. This will result in a bone-chilling night, with lows tonight in the single digits and below zero. The cold air will likely maintain slick and icy streets overnight, with a concern that we'll see a hazardous commute Tuesday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 3; High: 38. The snow may be gone, but you'll want to layer up Tuesday morning before heading outside. Morning lows will be in the single digits, with highs moderating into the upper 30s under sunny skies.

PUEBLO: Low: 1; High: 38. A very cold morning for Pueblo on Tuesday will warm nicely for the afternoon hours. With sunshine and temperatures above freezing, plenty of afternoon snow melt should take place during the day.

CANON CITY: Low: 3; High: 38. Cold morning temperatures will be the big story on Tuesday. Highs will be warmer for the afternoon, thanks to abundant sunshine and light westerly winds.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: -3; High: 32. It will be dangerously cold early in the day in Woodland Park. Wind chill values are forecast to range between -6 and -11. Highs will warm into the lower 30s by the afternoon, with plenty of sunshine.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 0s; High: 30s. With lows in the single digits Tuesday morning, make sure to dress in layers and limit your time outdoors until the sun warms us up in the afternoon. Highs will peak in the 30s under sunny skies.

PLAINS: Low: 0s; High: 30s/40s. Clear skies and a very cold start to our Tuesday across the Plains will warm into the 30s and 40s under sunny skies.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 0s; High: 30s. Dress in lots of layers early in the day. Highs will warm above freezing on Tuesday, which should allow for us to peel off some of the heavier layers for the afternoon.

Extended Outlook: Cold lows will continue Wednesday morning, but as the airmass warms under the influence of high pressure, daytime highs will moderate through mid-week. A slight cool-down arrives Thursday, along with some strong breezes courtesy of a weak system moving through Colorado. Significant warming follows for the upcoming weekend, with highs in the 60s across the region.
