Warm before late week storm

Wednesday will be breezy and feature more sunshine. This will allow temps to climb back into the 70s for the Springs and Pueblo. Red Flag Warnings are in effect for the Southern I-25 corridor Wednesday afternoon, which is where we are likely to see the strongest wind.

Thursday temps are even warmer and wind is even stronger ahead of the arrival of our next storm... Fire Danger will be elevated for all. Temps will be in the 70s and 80s.

Our next chance for meaningful moisture moves in Thursday night into Friday of this week. This is shaping up to be a *significant Spring storm* system for Southern Colorado. The good news is the beneficial moisture it will provide, the bad news is the wind that comes with it will be very strong and snow will likely make travel difficult to impossible at times around and N of the Pikes Peak Region...

Our "high" temperatures will be right around midnight Friday morning as temperatures plummet during the day. This will allow for a changeover from rain to snow for Teller County, the Palmer Divide and possibly parts of Northern Colorado Springs as well. Travel Friday morning continues to look ill advised.

Details on who gets rain or snow and how much of it remains up in the air due to the storm still being a few days out... heaviest snow looks to impact N El Paso County, up through the Palmer Divide and Teller Counties... Outside of the mountains, locations south of El Paso County look to stay an all rain event. Stay tuned with your Breaking Weather Team for more specific details as we get closer.

This will bring in a weekend cool down... highs drop to the 40s 50s and 60s Friday through Sunday. We will dry out Saturday, but we could see the return for a few showers late Sunday through the start of the work week.
