Arctic Air, light snow, and wind will make an appearance at the lower elevations. While the snow doesn't look to be big deal at the lower elevations, some areas west and southwest of Pueblo could get 2-4". Hardly a big snowstorm, but it will be enough to produce slick roads. The bigger story will be the cold. Most of today will see temperatures in the single digits and teens. That is 40 to 50 degrees colder than yesterday! Folks, this cold air is not going to hit and run. High temperatures will be in the 20's to around 30 for most of next week. Bottomline, get ready for some cold weather.

The mountains will be a different story. Heavy snow will likely continue through into the first part of next week. Snow will be measured in FEET when it's all said and done. Be prepared for hazardous travel if you have mountain travel planned.

If you are travelling, make sure your car has a full tank of gas and is in good working order, make sure you have a fully charged cell phone, pack some extra clothes and blankets, and maybe some non-perishable food items. It would be pretty rough to get stranded in this type of weather.
