TONIGHT: Light to moderate accum of snow through the overnight hours. Due to the prolonged colder air yielding colder ground temps, snow will stick rather quickly with bridges/elevated surfaces and secondary roads becoming slick by the evening commute.
Winter Weather Advisories in effect for northern El Paso, Teller, Douglas, and Pueblo Counties starting at 5pm and going through early tomorrow morning. The evening commute tonight shouldn't be drastically impacted by the snowfall. The biggest concerns tonight will be wet roads and visibility issues from the snow showers.
Snow accumulation will likely begin to occur after 8pm along the I-25 corridor, with snow-covered roads an issue for your Tuesday morning commute. Snow accumulation totals will range from 2-4" for the lower elevations of El Paso County and 3-5" for locations above 7000ft. Pueblo and southern Colorado is favored for heavy snowfall overnight with Winter Storm Warnings in effect for Huerfano/Las Animas Counties. Wouldn't surprise me if Pueblo reached 4-6" of snow by tomorrow morning.
TUESDAY: Snow showers will gradually taper off, turning partly cloudy during the afternoon with temperatures staying in the high 20s and low 30s,
EXTENDED: Another disturbance moves in by Wednesday allowing for a few snow flurries for the afternoon hours with temps in the 30's. We clear out and return to more settled conditions by the end of the workweek with a gradual warming trend returning temps to the 40's for most areas.
