Tonight's Forecast:
Not as cold tonight across Southern Colorado thanks to light downslope breezes and increasing clouds. No precipitation is expected during the overnight hours, but that will change on Tuesday as a storm system drops in from the north.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 28; High: 40. Unsettled weather will push back into the Pikes Peak Region on Tuesday as a cold front drops in during the morning hours. This front will bring us a combination of strong winds and colder temperatures, plus the chance for spotty afternoon snow showers.

PUEBLO: Low: 25; High: 46. Tuesday's weather will be much colder than today as a cold front moves into town before the lunch hour. In addition to the cold, it will be windy throughout the day, with a few snow flurries possible by the afternoon.

CANON CITY: Low: 31; High: 45. After such a beautiful Monday, our nice weather will come crashing down on Tuesday as a cold front drops in from the north. This front will deliver a blast of cold and wind, and possible snow showers.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 20; High: 32. Tuesday will be much colder, with gusty winds and snow showers. The afternoon high will top out near freezing as snow showers should taper off by the evening hours.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 30s. An early morning cold front will bring a blast of cold and windy weather to the Palmer Divide and northern El Paso County on Tuesday. Snow may also accompany the storm during day, with a few inches of fresh snowfall possible.

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 40s/50s. Mostly cloudy, windy and colder on Tuesday across the Plains, with just a slight chance of an afternoon rain or snow shower.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s/30s; High: 40s. Windy and colder on Tuesday as a cold front drops in from the north. Moisture looks a little better concentrated here, with the potential for afternoon snow showers to develop.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s; High: 10s/20s. Cold and windy across the mountains on Tuesday, with the potential for snow showers throughout the day. By Tuesday night, mountain locations could see between 1-4" of fresh snow.

Extended Outlook:
A colder storm system will drop in from Canada on Wednesday, bringing a reinforcing shot of cold air to Southern Colorado and the potential for snow showers to some areas. Wednesday's highs will only warm into the 20s and 30s, with lows Wednesday night dropping down to the single digits and teens. As the storm system pulls away from the area on Thursday, the cold air initially won't be in a big hurry to move out of Southern Colorado. Finally by the weekend, a warmer airmass returns, along with dry weather.
