Another morning and another day that we have to talk about scattered snow showers and some scattered rain showers. Most of us woke to temperatures in the 20s and 30s. This afternoon, highs will only reach into the 30s and 40s for SE Colorado.
By this evening, clouds will re-increase across the region and then rain and snow showers will develop. Rain showers are expected around Pueblo, Kim, Lamar, La Junta and Springfield. Mostly light rain will fall. For areas around Woodland Park, Colorado Springs, La Veta and the Palmer Divide will see snow showers develop this evening.
Snow accumulation and rain accumulations looks to be very light. In some higher elevation areas we could see some light accumulations on the roads but for the most part, roads should remain in good condition. Side roads and secondary roads but see a light coating of snow this evening and tonight.
Thursday brings warmer temperatures to the region and an isolated chance of rain showers and maybe even a rumble of thunder to the region. Higher elevations above 7,000 feet will see snow fall but below though, it will be all rain. Severe storms are not looking likely but a few of the rain showers could produce gusty winds.
Skies will be mostly to partly sunny through Friday across SE Colorado. Temperatures will finally jump back to around average come Thursday and Friday and then this weekend, full sunshine and mild temperatures are forecast for all of Colorado as high pressure moves in.
Enjoy the wet weather we've had, it's helping out our drought quite a bit and is great weather to help off set the upcoming fire season.
