A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late this morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later this afternoon. Locations higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to colder temperatures. So then, Teller County, far northwest El Paso County, and the Wet & Sangre de Cristo Mountains will likely see several inches of wet snow. The major cities will see far less snow and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
A high wind warning was in effect for portions of the Pikes Peak Region this morning, as gusts up to 60 miles per hour toppled trees and even knocked over a semi truck in Colorado Springs.
Meteorologist Branden Borremans says gusts reached 70-80 miles per hour from Monument to the Air Force Academy.
This afternoon, expect winds to considerably diminish. Temperatures will remain mild.
High winds like we saw this morning are not expected again in the next few days.
