With the snow moving out and our skies clearing up, we're expecting the worst of the cold tonight across Southern Colorado. Actual air temperatures will be well below zero for areas along and east of I-25. Wind chill values will be much worse, with a Wind Chill Warning in effect for El Paso County and the eastern Plains through 11 am Monday. Dangerous wind chills between -25 and -35 degrees will occur. Avoid prolonged periods of time outside if possible as frostbite is likely to occur within a 15 to 30 minute window.
COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: -13; High: 20. If the morning low drops below -8 degrees in Colorado Springs, we will have ourselves a new record on Monday. Once the sun comes out, temperatures should moderate quite a bit compared to what we saw this past weekend.
PUEBLO: Low: -12; High: 18. A record low isn't likely in Pueblo on Monday, with the current record standing at -23 degrees. Sunshine will push temperatures into the upper teens by the afternoon, which is still well below average for this time of the year.
CANON CITY: Low: -8; High: 32. We'll see negative morning lows and wind chill values down to -20 degrees around Canon City on Monday morning. Highs will rebound from the weekend, topping out near the freezing mark.
WOODLAND PARK: Low: -10; High: 29. Brutally cold morning temperatures and wind chill values can be expected throughout Teller County on Monday. Highs will be warmer than what we saw this weekend as the Arctic airmass starts to pull away.
TRI-LAKES: Low: -10s; High: 20s. Monday morning will be rough across northern El Paso County, with a Wind Chill Warning in effect until 11 am. Mostly sunny skies will help us turn the corner as highs warm into the lower and middle 20s.
PLAINS: Low: -10s/-20s; High: 0s/10s. Wind Chill Warnings are in effect across the Plains through 11 am Monday. This is dangerous cold folks, and you should avoid spending more than a few minutes outside if possible. Highs will be brutal as well, only warming into the single digits and teens.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: -0s; High: 30s. A Wind Chill Advisory will stay in effect until 11 am Monday across the southern I-25 corridor. Sunshine will set the stage for some decent warming as highs climb into the lower 30s.
MOUNTAINS: Low: -0s; High: 10s/20s. Dry and cold across the mountains on Monday, with a chance for a few developing snow showers by Monday night, and better chances for snow on Tuesday.
Highs will continue to moderate on Tuesday, with above freezing temperatures returning to the Plains for the first time since late last week. A cold front will drop in Tuesday evening, bringing with it the chance for a few light snow showers. Colder highs can be expected behind the front, with another round of snow possible on Wednesday. Looking for a warm-up...that's a good possibility by the weekend as highs should be allowed to climb back into the 40s and 50s.
