COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 26; High: 45. Dry skies Monday morning will give way to an afternoon mix of rain and snow, followed by light snow showers tomorrow night. Snow totals less than 1".

PUEBLO: Low: 24; High: 49. An active start to the week on Monday, with a fast-moving system bring rain showers to the forecast by the afternoon. Rain will likely to turn to snow by the evening. Snow totals less than 1".

CANON CITY: Low: 32; High: 49. Monday morning will start out dry, with a rain/snow mix developing by the afternoon. Rain will likely turn to snow around sunset. Snow totals less than 1".

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 25; High: 40. Snow showers in the morning will give way to steadier snow for the afternoon and evening hours. It's a fast-moving system, so totals will be fairly light, generally from 1-3".

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 40s. Dry skies for the morning hours, with increasing chances for snow by the afternoon and evening. Caution should be exercised traveling over the Palmer Divide tomorrow evening as roads could turn slick and icy. Snow totals from a trace to 2".

Extended Outlook: Dry skies on Tuesday with a break in the action before another storm moves into Southern Colorado on Wednesday. While this next storm looks colder, I don't see it bringing anything more than minor to moderate impacts to our forecast. Light snow accumulations will be possible for Colorado Springs and Pueblo Wednesday evening, with a few inches or more for Canon City and Woodland Park.
