Today’s Forecast:

We still have some snow up in the high mountain passes like Monarch Pass early this morning, and there is lingering snow on the west half of I-70 through Colorado.

Most of today will be dry with strong winds through the first half of the day. The winds will be strongest in and out of the mountains early this morning, with a sunny and breezy afternoon.

We will stay dry today, but quick-moving rain and snow showers are likely Thursday night.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 63; Low: 32. High winds are expected through the early morning across Colorado springs, mainly on the west sides of town with 30 to 50 mph gusts running down the Rampart Range. The rest of the day will be breezy, dry, and sunny with comfortable temperatures.

Snow Acumulation
Snow accumulation forecast for Thursday night, 10/14/2021

We're not expecting much snow accumulation from this system due in part to warm road temperatures and how quick it'll move through the region. If we do see any snow accumulation, it's likely at or above 7,000 feet in the Pikes Peak Region, and over some of the Wet Mountains. Teller County could cool the roads quickly enough to make travel a little slick Thursday evening, but if snow totals stay under 2 inches, it's likely most travel would be fine. Black Forest and the Tri-Lakes area would probably see the best chance at one to two inches of snow Thursday night, but the pavement would likely not hold much of that. Colorado Springs could see a little snow in the grass on the north end of town, but no pavement accumulation is expected south of the Briargate area.

A hard freeze is expected Thursday and Friday night across the region.
