Forecast

Spotty fog and even some flurries to the east of Colorado Springs and Pueblo early on, but that will burn off and we’ll have more sunshine. After our frigid start, we’ll be a little bit better, but still chilly in the afternoon with highs in the 20s to low 30s. It’ll be a quiet day overall.

Wednesday night, high clouds filter overhead for the Front Range and the plains. Along with these comes some warmer air, so expect some breezes on the eastern slopes overnight. We’ll still be cold, but we won’t have many areas below zero. Snow begins for the central and northern ski resorts after midnight.
