Last Update: Apr. 3, 4:45 AM
FRIDAY: Snow showers are on the decrease this morning, but there are snow covered roads in parts of the Pikes Peak region back into the mountains and wet roads around Pueblo. We’ll keep the clouds around until the afternoon, especially up against the foothills. Assuming we get an hour or two of cloud breaks in the afternoon we’ll get into the 40s around Colorado Springs. If they clouds don’t break up at all, we may stay in the 30s. A few showers are possible across the Pikes Peak Region and other spots over the eastern mountains late Friday.
TONIGHT: A weak wave will move over southern Colorado and will likely produce some scattered shower activity over the mountains. Any snow accumulation should be spotty and light. With the snow covered areas over the plains, some fog may develop, particularly over the Palmer Divide.
SATURDAY: Any fog over the plains should burn off during the morning. Temperatures will be warmer than Friday, but this will be a transition day of the really warm and dry weather in the extended forecast. Enough lingering moisture overhead will produce a partly cloudy sky and there will be enough instability for a couple isolated, generally weak and short lived, showers over and near the mountains in the afternoon. Highs mainly in the 50s and 60s.
EXTENDED: Warmer air builds back in by Saturday with more sunshine in store for the weekend. We’ll really feel mild by Sunday and into next week with highs back to the 60s and 70s with a few 80 degree readings Tuesday. We’re watching next Thursday for a storm system to move in across the Desert Southwest and bring a return of more active weather. Stay tuned as we track this system!
