Extended outlook forecast:
Monday's warm-up will continue through the middle of the week, with highs in Colorado Springs climbing into the upper 40s on Tuesday followed by highs in the lower 50s on Wednesday and Thursday. Pueblo and parts of the Arkansas River Valley could flirt with 60 degrees by mid-week.

A few fast-moving clipper systems will bring some light snow to the mountains around the middle of the week, but snow is not expected to reach the Pikes Peak Region until Friday. That's when our next storm will arrive. For now, this storm looks pretty weak, with our best shot for snow from late Friday into very early Saturday morning. Stay tuned...
