Third October snow in the forecast: Here’s what you need to know

A cold front is moving in Saturday night and bringing more snow Sunday. For the third time this October we asked our meteorologists how much, when and where?

Saturday night: It’s going to get cold. For a while.

KRDO meteorologist Sam Postich says we’ll be feeling “January-like temperatures” through Wednesday. That means high temperatures in the 20s and 30s.

Saturday night will also bring wind gusts up to 30mph across the I-25 corridor that will calm down throughout the day Sunday.

Sunday morning and early afternoon: Just flurries to start.

Flurries are possible earlier in the day Sunday, but with minimal accumulation in El Paso County. Winter Weather Advisories begin at 4 p.m. along the I-25 corridor.

Sunday night: The main event. And it gets colder.

Colorado Springs: 4″ – 6″, with elevations over 7,000 ft up to 10″
Pueblo: 3″ – 6″
Canon City: 5″ – 8″
Woodland Park 6″ – 10″

Moderate to heavy snow will begin after 6 p.m. with the heaviest periods occurring from midnight Sunday into Monday morning. Temperatures will drop to about 15 degrees, which is just 2 degrees away from the record low set in 1991 for Oct. 28.

Monday morning: Commuting will be tough.

Heavy bands of snow and covered roads will make for limited visibility and hazardous driving conditions.
