Tonight: Currently a few scattered flurries and rain showers are crossing I-25, making for wet roads in areas. Precipitation will increase across the region over the next few hours with rain changing to snow in Colorado Springs and northward. The bulk of the moisture will look to pass to the east relatively quickly after 10pm tonight with clearing skies by early Thursday morning. Minor snowfall totals in El Paso County and through the I-25 corridor with less than an inch expected. Overnight low temperatures to 26 degrees in Colorado Springs and 29 in Pueblo.
Thursday: Finally some sunshine! Look for a beautiful morning in central/southern Colorado with high temperatures pushing back towards seasonal averages, high 50s in Colorado Springs and low to mid 60s across HWY 50. Increasing clouds during the afternoon with scattered showers and isolated thunderstorms are possible, but of low severity.
Extended: Rinse and repeat the forecast for Friday with another round of scattered thunderstorms, although the coverage of precipitation will be greater than that of Thursday. High pressure will build into Colorado this weekend making for warm temperatures and sunny skies. Winds will be the main focus Saturday/Sunday with gusts reaching 25mph then 35mph respectively. Keep an eye on Tuesday of next week, as a strong cold front is gearing up to enter the region. This front could bring very strong winds and more rain/snow chances.
