Forecast for tonight:
A cold front will sweep through southern Colorado late in the evening, and once it arrives, the north wind gusts will really start to crank up. Across the region, we could see peak gusts near 40 mph. Winds should ease a little behind the front but could still gust between 20 and 30 mph tonight through Monday morning.
As for precipitation, the storm’s southern lane continues to favor areas south of the Arkansas River Valley with the most accumulation. Those areas will remain under winter weather warnings until late Monday morning. In El Paso and Teller counties, some overnight severe weather could cause light pollination in some areas, with up to 1 inch of snow possible for parts of Pueblo and Fremont counties tonight.
Colorado Springs Forecast: Low: 19; High: 34; A few overnight snow flurries shouldn’t matter much for the Pikes Peak region, as most of the snow is expected to fall far to our south. Watch out for cloudy skies early Monday morning, followed by a partly cloudy and cold afternoon.
Pueblo Forecast: Low: 23; High: 38; A few overnight snow showers could bring a light dusting of snow across the Steel City, with fairly minor impact expected for the morning commute. Expect unseasonably cold highs and a few rays of sunshine in the afternoon.
Forecast for Canon City: Low: 26; High: 36; With the possibility of up to 1 inch of snowfall overnight in Canon City, roads could be slick and icy in some spots in the morning. For the afternoon hours we are trending much colder than today, with the highs only getting warmer in the mid 30s.
Woodland Park Forecast: Low: 10; High: 27; A very cold start to the week for Teller County. Although we will be mostly dry during the day, some light snow showers are possible early Monday morning and again late Monday evening.
Tri-Lakes Forecast: Low: 10s; High: 20s/30s; Cold, with a few light snow showers early Monday morning followed by a mostly cloudy and super cold start to the working week.
Plain’s prognosis: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s; A cold, windy and choppy start to the week for the Plains. Though light accumulation will be possible along Highway 50, heavier snowfall overall could accumulate for Las Animas and Baca counties as those areas are under a winter weather warning through 2:00 p.m. Monday. Snow totals of 1-4″.
Forecast for Walsenburg and Trinidad: Low: 10s/20s; High: 20s/30s; The winter weather warnings remain in effect on the I-25 south corridor until 11:00 a.m. and due to the possibility of snow and gusty winds, road conditions could be affected by ice, snow and reduced visibility. Snow totals of 1-4″.
Mountain Forecast: Low: 0s/10s; High: 10s/20s; The next day cold and snowy over the mountains. 1-3″ of snow is possible in the Wets and Northern Sangres, but for the Southern Sangres snow totals could range from 4-7″. Those areas will remain under winter weather warnings through 11 a.m. Monday.
The coming week will be a cold one for southern Colorado, with periods of light snowfall also not excluded. Looking ahead to Monday, our next chance for light snow is expected Tuesday, with another round of light accumulation over the mountains and southern I-25 corridor. Tuesday’s highs could struggle to break above freezing in many areas.
Wednesday will be slightly warmer and drier before our next potential storm will sweep through the region late Thursday. Though we did see a few light snow showers Thursday night and Friday morning, the bigger story at this point appears to be another blast of cold Canadian air. Friday’s highs will only warm into the 20s across the Pikes Peak region, with overnight lows heading into the weekend and falling into the single digits.
