Today’s Forecast:
The snow is gone and the sun is back! Blue skies will be beautiful today, but won't help much when it comes to a warm-up. Highs will be chilly all throughout Southern Colorado, only warming into the upper 20s and 30s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 31; Low: 14. Cold highs today with plenty of sunshine in the forecast. We'll see increasing clouds tonight, but no precipitation is expected in the Pikes Peak Region.

PUEBLO: High: 33; Low: 10. Even with an abundance of sunshine, highs today will struggle to get above freezing. Lows tonight will drop back down to the teens, with increasing clouds late.

CANON CITY: High: 34; Low: 18. The snow is gone, and behind last night's storm will be a sunny and cold Sunday.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 30; Low: 16. The sun is back, but won't do much to warm us up this afternoon. Highs in Teller County will only warm into the upper 20s and lower 30s.

TRI-LAKES: High: 20s; Low: 10s. Layer up this morning as you head outside, and prepare to keep those layers on today as highs will only warm into the upper 20s.

PLAINS: High: 20s/30s; Low: 0s/10s. Clearing skies and cold temperatures this afternoon across the Plains, with an even colder night to follow as lows in some areas will drop down to the single digits.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 20s; Low: 10s. Clear skies and cold temperatures today will give way to a cold night, with increasing clouds late.

MOUNTAINS: High: 10s/20s; Low: 0s/10s. Clear skies and cold temperatures today in the mountains. Tonight we'll see increasing clouds and gusty winds out ahead of our next winter storm that's set to arrive early Monday.

Extended Outlook:
Monday will start out dry, but mostly cloudy as we'll find ourselves waiting for our next storm to arrive. Ahead of the storm, highs will be warmer on Monday afternoon by about 6-10 degrees. By Monday morning, snow will push into the mountains. Some of that snow will make it into the Plains by Monday evening, and continue with scattered snow showers and light accumulations through Tuesday morning. Highs will be much colder Tuesday as the system clears out, only warming into the 20s and 30s.
