A strong cold front will move through Southern Colorado on Tuesday. It will bring much colder temperatures (especially in the afternoon), strong wind, & a few rain and snow showers. Light accumulations and poor visibility possible for a time by late afternoon and evening north of Colorado Springs and south/southwest of Pueblo. Bottomline, your Tuesday will feel a lot different than the past two days. Be prepared...
