Wind chill warnings continue until Tuesday, and snow will fall on Monday

Today’s forecast:

Wind chill warning Effective through Tuesday at 11 a.m. for Southern Colorado for all areas along and east of I-25 (East Plains + Corridor).

Another very cold day awaits in southern Colorado. Wind chills this morning were in the 20s to 30s along the Front Range and eastern Plains, with relative warmth in the foothills that saw temperatures in the low 20s.

Today’s record low at Colorado Springs Airport is -6 degrees, set in 1997. Record low is 10 degrees, set in 1972. In Pueblo, the record low is -15, set in 1979, and record low is Also 10 degrees and also set in 1972. With these numbers in mind, we have likely broken this morning’s record low in the Springs with a reading of -8 at 8:00 AM this morning. We’ll have to wait until later today to see if this is confirmed by our partners at the National Weather Service. In Pueblo, our average temperature has only dropped to around -3, so we are just shy of the record low.

Today wind chills are expected to remain below zero all day with low single digit highs. Pack it up!!!

Extended forecast forecast:
The cold weather continues into Tuesday with a chance to break several records across the region.

Monday starts out very cold – with negative wind chills again. A cold front passes through Monday afternoon – bringing snow showers to the foothills and areas north of U.S. 24. An impact of up to an inch is possible at best with these showers. At Monument Hill, brief heavy rain is possible but similarly low accumulations are expected. A wave is possible in other areas. The bitter cold will continue into Tuesday morning, which will be the coldest morning of this cold snap before temperatures rebound on a mainly sunny Tuesday into the mid 20s.

Wednesday will be great after all that cold with temperatures rising into the 50s thanks to slope breezes helping to warm the air. Another storm chance arrives Thursday with a lull over the weekend – but it points to a calmer pattern, at least for a little while.
