Gusty wind, low relative humidities, warm temperatures, and dry fuels will all combine to produce high fire danger this afternoon and early evening. Red Flag Warning goes into effect at Noon and lasts until 8pm. Please, no outdoor burning or use of flammable materials. Head to the "Weather" Tab for more information on the forecast.
Areas of rain and snow will be moving through this evening. We will have a narrow window between 5pm and 11pm to see some rain and wet snow. Given the short duration of this event, it likely won't cause any problems tonight, and shouldn't provide any problems for the Monday morning commute. Any heavy accumulations of snow will be confined to the mountains ( especially the San Juan's and Sangre de Cristo's ). The precipitation will be showery, so it is tough to pin down exactly who will see what. It may be one of those things where it snows really hard for 30 minutes and then it quits, as the shower moves on. Given that type of scenario, someone may pick up a quick dusting to 2" of wet, sloppy snow. However, this does not look like a big snow event for Colorado Springs and Pueblo or the adjacent communities. The southeast plains will mainly see rain, with a transition to a little wet snow late tonight.
