Warming begins Tuesday before a weekend storm


Tonight’s forecast:
A disturbance to our west that will bring snow to the mountains this evening will keep our skies partly to mostly cloudy. Despite the clouds, no precipitation is expected east of the mountains due to this storm. Overnight lows tonight will not be as cold as last night, as the colder air is expected to stay in the mountains and mountain valleys.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Bottom: 24; High: 48. Windy and warmer Tuesday, with decreasing cloud in the afternoon and evening and near average highs for the Pikes Peak area.

PUEBLO: Low: 21; High: 53. A nice warming trend for our Tuesday as highs rebound in the lower 50s.

CITY OF CANON: Moo: 30 ; High: 52. The skies will become partly cloudy to mostly sunny by midday as temperatures warm up a bit from what we saw on Monday.

WOODED PARK: Moo: 26; High: 43. A mostly cloudy early sky will give way to a mostly sunny and windy afternoon in Teller County. In the afternoon, gusts of 20 to 30 mph will be possible.

TRI-LAKES: Moo: 10s / 20s; High: 1940s. Snow will fall on the mountains until noon Tuesday, but for northern El Paso County our forecast will be dry and windy, with near-season temperatures expected.

COMPLAINTS: Moo: 20 years ; High: 40s / 50s. Lighter winds and more sunshine for our Tuesday across the plains, and much more comfortable temperatures expected for the afternoon highs.

WALSENBURG / TRINIDAD: Moo: 20s / 30s; High: 40s / 50s. We will see a nice warming trend on Tuesday thanks to a good dose of afternoon sun and cool downhill winds.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 20 years ; High: 30/40. Snow from our current storm will largely miss our southeastern mountains, as the snow appears to stay closer to the Continental Divide. If you are traveling through the Monarch Pass or the Central Mountains, you can expect winter driving conditions and possible delays due to snow.

Extended outlook:
A dry, descending wind regime will bring warmer-than-average highs over the I-25 corridor and the plains from Wednesday to Thursday. Midweek highs will warm up in the 1950s and 1960s, and a high and uneven fire danger may develop in some of our more windy areas. For the mountains, a second storm will bring the potential for more robust snow totals from Wednesday evening, with potential for snow until the start of the weekend. For the I-25 corridor, light accumulations can occur from Friday afternoon until late Friday evening.
