Colder air settling in, but what of the talk of snow?


As is always the case with these situations, the track can shift a little bit even overnight tonight and tomorrow, so forecasts are likely to change. By that definition, the last time Colorado Springs saw a white Christmas was in 1987.

Before we being digging into the snow chances, let's address the cold for today and Friday. If it is going to snow, the timing is from Saturday afternoon through the first part of Saturday night. Light snow showers are possible and temperatures fall back to the middle and upper 30s. This will help lead to clearing skies behind the aforementioned cold front, but the sunshine will also come with a chill in the air.

Today with plenty of sunshine highs will only reach the low-mid 30s. As that front looks to be fairly far off the coast, most of the moisture should stay out over the ocean as well. In these areas the rain/snow mix will possibly be intense enough to allow for possible accumulations on grassy surfaces during the day. Otherwise, expect partly cloudy skies, brisk breezes, and colder temperatures to be the rule through the rest of the weekend.

A clipper will sweep by to the northeast on Wednesday. Once again, the best chance of seeing snow will be generally in locations between Birmingham and Montgomery. Regardless, the cold pattern keeps chugging right along through next week.
