Today’s Forecast:
Arctic air overnight kept most areas east of I-25 in the negatives, and we won't get a whole lot warmer later in the afternoon. We'll start off dry, but light snow is expected this evening along the interstate and west into the mountains. Heavier snow is likely on Wednesday, but even the light snow tonight could lead to a few slick spots.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 37; Low: 14. Cloudy and cold with gusty winds on the north and west sides of town. Light snow will fall late today through the evening, but snow totals should stay at an inch or less for most of the Pikes Peak Region.

PUEBLO: High: 36; Low: 13. Very cold in the morning and still cold later today as clouds and easterly winds move in. Light snow is possible this evening but snow accumulation tonight should stay under one inch.

CANON CITY: High: 39; Low: 20. Cloudy and cold today with gusty winds and snow that will develop late today and last into the early evening. Little accumulation is expected tonight, but more snow will fall Wednesday.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 34; Low: 11. Cloudy, cold, and windy with snow falling this afternoon into the evening hours. Snow should stay light tonight but we could see up to an inch, more is expected Wednesday night.

TRI-LAKES: High: 30s; Low: 10s. Cold, cloudy, and windy today with light snow through the evening. Snow totals tonight should stay under one inch, but more could fall on Wednesday.

PLAINS: High: 20/30s; Low: 10s. Extremely cold again this morning with deep negatives in place. We'll warm up this afternoon into the 20s and a few 30s with mostly dry conditions. Only a few flurries could fall near La Junta this evening.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 30s; Low: 10s. Cold and windy today under clouds with light snow this evening. Heavier snow will fall west in the mountains tonight and over La Veta Pass, but we still expect the bulk of our snow to fall Wednesday night.

MOUNTAINS: High: 30s; Low: 10s. Heavier snow will continue to fall on the west side of the Continental Divide this morning, but snow will fall on our Sangre De Cristo and Wet Mountains today and tonight. A second round of snow will fall Wednesday, and that two-day total could lead to heavy snow in both ranges, particularly around the Sangres.

Extended Outlook:
Snow will fall again Wednesday evening but we should be dry Thursday. Warmer air arrives by Friday and then we'll get even warmer by next Monday. Light flurries and snow showers are possible on Saturday.
