Patchy fog across the forecast region this morning with cloudy and cold weather expected to last all day and night. Snow will move in from New Mexico this morning, becoming more widespread and heavy from lunch through the afternoon. There could be a corridor of freezing today through the evening, mainly east of Pueblo in Crowley and Otero Counties. Snowfall will be fairly light, but still enough to make the roads slick as heavy bands pile generally between 1 to 3 inches between Colorado Springs and Pueblo from the late morning through the afternoon. We'll be dry tonight with more snow coming on Saturday.

A second round of snow will move through Colorado on Saturday, but with the biggest impacts expected over our southern mountains and some of the divides. Strong northerly winds will likely keep Colorado Springs to Pueblo on the drier side, with less than an inch of snow expected. The Palmer Divide and Raton Mesa will likely see a few more inches Saturday, but the heaviest accumulations will be over the southern mountains. Blowing snow will make travel difficult on Saturday, with wind chills down in the teens and even some single digits.
