Snowy morning commute with dangerous cold and daytime flurries

1 month ago KOAA

Today’s Forecast:
Many roads are slick today due to snow over the last 48 hours with temperatures cold enough for frostbite to damage exposed skin in less than 20 minutes.

The big story today will be the lingering arctic airmass with more spotty daytime flurries. Not much more snow accumulation is expected, but easterly upslope winds could continue to drop spotty flurries off and on through the afternoon.

Some of the coldest air of the weekend arrived overnight with morning lows on Monday spread between negatives and single digits. Wind chill values as of 3:30 AM were split between 0° and -30° along and east of I-25.

Current Pikes Peak Region Wind Chill:

Current Southern Colorado Wind Chill:

An important reminder on days like this is the danger of frostbite. Frostbite can occur in less than 20 minutes to exposed or poorly covered skin with temperatures and wind chills in the negatives. Fingers, toes, and uncovered parts of your face like your nose are the most susceptible parts of the body to frostbite.

Colorado Springs forecast: High: 13; Low: -1. Mostly cloudy with dangerous cold and spotty daytime flurries. Light easterly winds will keep the chance for spotty flurries through the afternoon but no new accumulation is expected. Overnight, the winds will become calm but the actual air temperatures will be very dangerous with lows likely just below zero.

Pueblo forecast: High: 15; Low: 0. Mostly cloudy, dangerously cold, and breezy with a few daytime flurries. If we do see more flurries today, we won't see any accumulation. Overnight, the winds will become calm with lows falling below zero.

Canon City forecast: High: 25; Low: 4. Mostly cloudy and extremely cold with highs in the 20s through the afternoon. Arctic air will not move west as easily today, so Fremont County in general will be warmer than Pueblo. We should be dry today with isolated flurries possible east near the Pueblo county border.

Woodland Park forecast: High: 29; Low: 2. Mostly sunny and cold, but nowhere near as cold as Colorado Springs! Teller County sits above the arctic air today, so we should stay dry with highs in the low 30s. Tonight will still be very cold with lows close to zero.

Tri-Lakes forecast: High: 10s; Low:

Plains forecast: High: 10s; Low:

Walsenburg and Trinidad forecast: High: 20s; Low:

Mountains forecast: High: 30s; Low:

Extended outlook forecast:
Tuesday will be the last really cold day of the week with a dramatic warm-up expected by Friday!

Highs should be back in the 40s across the plains by Wednesday with 50s by Friday! We don't see any rain or snow locally in the forecast this week.
