Snow is expected to develop for our Monday afternoon and overnight hours. Bands of heavier snow are possible..and something we will be monitoring throughout the day today. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for far northern El Paso County where ~4" are possible by Tuesday morning. Also ahead, a High Wind Watch for much of southeast Colorado from 4-11am Tuesday morning as wind gusts could reach up to 60 mph.

Another disturbance will swing through Southern Colorado this evening. This could produce some additional snow showers, some of which could be briefly heavy. Right now, the area likely to see one or two of these showers will be over eastern and northeast El Paso County. They should then move southeast into the Arkansas Valley before ending. The snow showes will likely be very spotty, so don't be surprised if you miss out. A quick half-inch to an inch might accumulate with some of the heavier showers, enough to coat the roads and breifly reduce visibilites. Otherwise, it should be a pretty nice and quiet evening.
