A snowstorm is on the way Tuesday morning, likely impacting holiday travel.
Updated accumulation totals are as follows:
Castle Rock 8-12"
Colorado Springs 3-5"
Sunday: Mostly sunny through the daytime hours in central/southern Colorado with temperatures to 53 degrees in Colorado Springs and 55 in Pueblo. Light winds at 5-10 mph with no chance of precipitation.
Monday: Partly cloudy skies with temperatures slightly cooler. 45 degrees by early afternoon in Colorado Springs. A strong cold front will be approaching from the north by late afternoon, which will have minimal impacts in El Paso County till early Tuesday morning.
Tuesday: Heavy snow likely Tuesday morning from northern Colorado through northern El Paso County. Winter Storm Watches are currently in effect for those areas. Colorado Springs will be on the lower end of snow accumulation totals, at the moment we're looking at 3-5". But as we get closer to the actual event, that forecast is susceptible to change. Monument is likely to see 6-10". Wind gusts will reach between 25-35mph during the snow event, potentially reducing visibility. Commuters and travelers should keep a very close eye on this Tuesday morning forecast, as flights and road conditions will be impacted.
