11 Breaking Weather Team Forecast Discussion
Meteorologist Christine Rapp
Monday Night, March 10th
Areas of moderate snow continue for some portions of northern El Paso and Teller Counties, where snow continues to accumulate on the grass and yards. Meanwhile, to the south (Huerfano, Las Animas) as well as in the plains, light rain/snow mix continues.
Due to VERY strong winds, we are seeing visibility issues all over the region. Blowing snow around the Pikes Peak region is causing near white-out conditions in some areas, with blowing dirt an issue to the south and east. Winds will continue throughout the overnight hours.
Snow will continue through the evening and early overnight hours. Lingering showers may stick around the Pikes Peak region through midnight, ending shortly after. Overnight lows will drop into the single digit and teens, so watch out for any icy spots on streets for the early morning commute!
Wednesday will be chilly (and a bit breezy) in the wake of this system, with daytime highs restricted to the 40s for most. The good news...ample sunshine!
While we can't rule out a few showers in the mountains and far southern sections on Thursday and Friday, most areas will remain dry. Highs in the 50s and low 60s. Another quick-hitting system will take aim on Saturday. This will likely bring another round of rain, snow, and wind to Southern Colorado by afternoon and evening.
Sunday and Monday look dry and mild at this point, with highs in the 50s and 60s.
