Tonight's Forecast:
The first in a series of disturbances will push snow into the mountains of southwestern Colorado tonight. The heaviest snow is expected to fall across the San Juans, where more than 2 feet of snow will be possible over the next 24 to 48 hours. East of the mountains, it will be a mostly cloudy, but dry night, with overnight lows cooling down to the 20s and 30s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 28; High: 59. Monday will be the "warm before the storm" weather wise. The daylight hours will be dry, but by Monday night, showers will be possible.

PUEBLO: Low: 27; High: 64. Chilly morning temperatures will give way to a nice and mild Monday afternoon. It will be dry during the day, but some rain will be possible by late evening.

CANON CITY: Low: 34; High: 62. Dry, mild and breezy on Monday, with increasing clouds and showers possible after sunset.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 27; High: 53. It will be warmer and generally dry on Monday, with a few showers possible by late afternoon. By Monday night, a mix of rain and snow will move into Teller County.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 50s. Mostly cloudy, breezy and warmer on Monday. It will be dry most of the day before a chance for rain and snow moves in late Monday night.

PLAINS: Low: 30s; High: 60s. Overcast and mild on Monday, with strong southerly gusts 35 to 45 mph. Even though it will be gray, rain or snow is not expected across the Plains.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 50s/60s. Monday will be mild and windy. Gusts to 45 mph will be possible during the day.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. Periods of snow will continue for the mountains on Monday. Although we're likely to see a lull in the action during the day, heavier snow is expected to pick up by the evening. Winter Storm Warnings and Winter Weather Advisories are in effect for most southern mountain ranges through 5 pm Tuesday.

Extended Outlook:
Moisture is expected to increase late Monday night and Tuesday. A cold front will push through the Palmer Divide near sunrise Tuesday, and continue to slide south through the state during the day. This should bring us several hours of snow, and once the cold air arrives, we could see a few inches of snowfall across the Pikes Peak Region. Dry weather returns Wednesday, with more snow showers possible late on Thanksgiving Day.
