This week, cool down the big story for Southern Colorado

Forecast for tonight:
Another weak disturbance will bring some flurries or isolated snow showers to parts of southern Colorado tonight. A few light snow showers are possible, mainly over the mountains and Pikes Peak region, with little to no accumulation expected.

Colorado Springs Forecast: Low: 16; High: 34; Windy and cold but dry Tuesday in the Pikes Peak region and our high temperature in Colorado Springs is unlikely to rise above freezing.

Pueblo Forecast: Low: 17; High: 40; Tuesday will be another cold one for the Steel City, with daily highs closer to mid-January than mid-November.

Forecast for Canon City: Low: 20; High: 39; Aside from a few overnight thunderstorms, we should see mostly sunny skies again heading into Tuesday afternoon, which probably won’t help much given another day of unseasonably cold temperatures.

Woodland Park Forecast: Low: 9; High: 27; Very cold temperatures tonight with a possibility of some light snow showers and an accumulation of up to 1 inch over parts of Teller County. Tuesday’s forecast appears to be partly cloudy and cold with some additional flurries possible later in the day.

Tri-Lakes Forecast: Low: 10s; High: 20s/30s; Severe cold weather is the big story over the next 24 hours, with some overnight snow showers giving way to generally dry skies on Tuesday.

Plain’s prognosis: Low: 10s/20s; High: 40s; Dry but cold for the next 24 hours on the Plains. Whilst Tuesday will not be particularly windy, with breezy north/north east winds it will feel colder than the actual temperature would suggest.

Forecast for Walsenburg and Trinidad: Low: 10s/20s; High: 20s/30s; After a very cold morning, Tuesday’s highs will be well below average for this time of year. There is also a chance for some light snow showers until early Tuesday morning.

Mountain Forecast: Low: 0s/10s; High: 10s/20s; A few snow showers will continue over the mountains of southern Colorado for the next 24 hours, with the potential for an additional couple of inches of accumulation in some areas.

Extended outlook:
A brief and very modest warm-up on Wednesday will give way to a stronger cold front on Thursday, with an intensifying puff of cold air as we head into the weekend. There appears to be potential for some snowfall behind the front, with a total snowfall of about 1-2 inches through Friday morning along the I-25 corridor. While not by much, it could be our biggest storm of the season so far.

Behind the storm, Friday will be very cold as highs will only warm into the 20s and very low 30s. Saturday will be chilly before we should see some relief from the cold by Sunday through next Monday.
