Light snow will stick around for the first half of the afternoon, with bands of moderate to heavy snow possible by the second half of the afternoon and evening. Friday we see snow wind down but the cold hangs on with temperatures only in the teens and wind chill values below or near zero for most of the day. For a look at additional snowfall potential and a preview of the weekend, head over to the "Weather" tab.
Snow showers will continue to wind down from north to south this evening. Areas along and west of I-25 will have the best chance for additional snow, with the southeast plains remaining dry.
Temperatures won't be terribly cold, so much of the snow that falls will likely melt on the roads. As temperatures cool this evening, some slick spots may materialize where the heavier snow occurs. This will be especially true over Monument Hill and in the Wets and Sangres.
4-8": Rye, Beulah, Colorado City, Wetmore, Westcliffe, Gardner, La Veta, Fort Garland, Stonewall, and all of the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Keep in mind the higher totals will likely occur in the mountains.
1 to 3": Northern Colorado Springs, Monument, Palmer Lake, Black Forest, Manitou Springs, Woodland Park, Cripple Creek, Canon City, Pueblo West. Isolated higher amounts are possible near Monument and Palmer Lake.
An inch or less: Downtown and Southern Colorado Springs, Pueblo, Fountain and most areas east of I-25. Most areas between Colorado Springs and Pueblo likely won't see any accumulation.
This system is a fast mover and won't hang around. Therefore, Saturday will be mostly sunny with temperatures mainly in the 30's and 40's.
