A storm system will begin to impact Southern Colorado by late Friday morning. Mountain locations will simply see snow, but lower elevations will see rain eventually change to snow by later Friday afternoon. Locations that are higher in elevation will see the heaviest snow, due to them seeing cooler temperatures. So, 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 amounts and the storm will exit toward early Saturday morning.
A strong ridge of high pressure over Eastern New Mexico and Western Texas will bring a hot and dry day to Southern Colorado. High temperatures will soar into the low 90's for Colorado Springs, low 100's in Pueblo. This will mark the first time this year that Colorado Spring and Pueblo will surpass 90 and 100 degrees, respectively.
If you have outdoor plans today, be sure to use sunscreen, wear light-colored clothing, and drink plenty of water. Spend some time in the shade, too. Obeying these rules of thumb will help you beat the heat!
