Locations on the Southeast Plains will likely see rain totals between .50" and 1.5". Great news to get this kind of rain, this early in March.
Monday night, as the storm winds up just to our southeast, a strong northerly wind will develop. This will likely mean minimal snow for areas south of Woodmen Road in Colorado Springs to Pueblo. Areas north of Woodmen Road, such as Monument, Black Forest, Peyton, etc., could see several inches of heavy wet snow. Coupled with the strong wind, travel could be hazardous Monday night and Tuesday morning for the areas that see the snow. Folks in the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains and the Raton Mesa could also see some heavy wet snow. This does include Rye, Beulah, Walsenburg, Aguilar, and Trindiad.
Still some details to work out, but at the very least, this storm should give many areas of Southern Colorado some appreciable moisture.
