TODAY: Sunny to partly cloudy skies are in the forecast for today. Winds start to ramp up through lunch and will max out at about 35 mph. This will allow for some high fire danger around Southern Colorado today. Red Flag Warnings are out for most of the area between noon and 8pm today, so please take fire prevention seriously today. Highs will be in the 70s and mid to upper 80s! Soak up the warmth while it is here!
TONIGHT: Partly cloudy with the chance for a flurry or two. Lows drop to the 20s and 30s by morning.
EXTENDED: By Thursday, temperatures will have dropped between 40 and 50 degrees. We start the day on a quiet, cold and partly cloudy note before things start to change during the mid-morning. Between 9am and 1pm, a moderate to heavy band of snow will drop into Teller County and El Paso County and snow should start piling up. If it comes down fast enough, roads will become slushy too. Minor accumulation is expected through Colorado Springs and north (Trace to 3″), with most of the snow falling in Teller County; Woodland Park could pick up between 3-5″ of accumulation. Places in Canon City and west will see 1-3″ with only a Trace in Pueblo. Highs will only be in the 20s and 30s with 40s over the plains. Snow clears out by 10pm and we are left with teens and single digits for morning temps on Friday. Warmth and sunshine return for the weekend.
