Tonight's Forecast:
The worst of the cold is behind us, but overnight will still be very cold across Southern Colorado. A Wind Chill Advisory has been extended through Tuesday morning for Bent and Baca counties, and the western part of Kiowa County. Wind chill values in these areas could drop down to -25 degrees, which can be quite dangerous for exposed skin.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 1; High: 35. Increasing clouds on Tuesday, with above freezing highs finally back in the forecast. A cold front will bring light snow showers to the Pikes Peak Region during the afternoon and evening hours, with minimal accumulations.

PUEBLO: Low: -6; High: 33. Starting out with sunshine before our next storm pushes a light mix of rain and snow into Pueblo County by Tuesday afternoon and evening. Light flurries will continue past midnight, with minimal accumulations.

CANON CITY: Low: 10; High: 37. Cold Tuesday morning lows will give way to above freezing highs. A cold front will bring moisture back to the forecast on Tuesday, with an afternoon and evening mix of rain and snow.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 12; High: 33. Mostly sunny skies will turn mostly cloudy by the afternoon as a weak disturbance pushes light snow into Teller County. Snow totals through late Tuesday night will stay mostly under 1".

TRI-LAKES: Low: 0s; High: 30s. Single digit lows and more extreme cold early will give way to increasing clouds and highs in the 30s. Light snow showers will develop by the afternoon, with minimal accumulations.

PLAINS: Low: -0s/0s; High: 20s. Extremely cold air will continue for the Plains for one more night, with dangerous wind chill values. Our next front will bring moisture to our west, with the snow not expected for the eastern Plains.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 10s; High: 30s. Warmer highs on Tuesday will mean that we'll finally warm to above freezing for the first time in nearly a week. Moisture will increase by the afternoon, with a light mix of rain and snow possible.

MOUNTAINS: Low: -0s/0s; High: 10s/20s. Snow showers will return to the mountains on Tuesday, lasting through Wednesday as a few disturbances push over the higher elevations. Accumulation through Wednesday evening will be the highest over the Sangres, with more than 10" of snow possible.

Extended Outlook:
Another round of light snow is expected to push in Wednesday afternoon through Thursday morning. Snowfall totals will be highest over the mountains, with general amounts of 1-3" for the I-25 corridor. The wintry weather will keep highs near the freezing mark through Thursday before a warming trend takes off. Highs by the weekend should return to the 40s and 50s, and it will feel nice!
