Wednesday will offer more cloud cover and cooler temperatures. By later Wednesday afternoon, rain showers will develop across the Pikes Peak Region and slowly drift southward. Those rain showers will change to snow at higher elevations, and accumulations will be likely. At lower elevations, snow accumulation does not appear to be a big deal. Forecast details can be found under the "Weather" tab.
Scattered snow showers will continue this evening, across Teller and El Paso County, as well as areas west and southwest of Pueblo. Right now, dry air is preventing much snow from falling in Colorado Springs and Pueblo. This looks to remain the case, as any accumulation that occurs will be light. Due to the scattered and spotty nature of the showers, some areas might not see any precipitation. However, places like Monument, Woodland Park, Falcon, Peyton and Calhan will see some light snow accumulations this evening.
The heaviest snow will fall southwest of Pueblo, in the Wet and Sangre de Cristo Mountains. Here, a solid 4 to 8 inches are possible with isolated higher amounts possible.
This storm is a very fast mover, and most of the precipitation should be exiting the state after midnight. Therefore, we shouldn't have any problems for the Wednesday morning commute.
