Cold blast has arrived and snow chances slowly creeping up!

You have likely heard folks discussing the prospects of snow in the Carolinas. By that definition, the last time Colorado Springs saw a white Christmas was in 1987.

This evening the winds die down.

The former treasurer of the Pueblo County Republican Party who was wanted on embezzlement charges appears to have fled the country. After a seasonal start to the week Monday, another cold front will move through, dropping temperatures again by next Tuesday with afternoon highs only in the 30s. Whatever falls will not amount to much as temperatures will remain above freezing and warm soil temperatures will limit accumulations. Temperatures will struggle to climb as we work through the rest of the day thanks to colder air continuing to build in across the region.

Sunshine should be more plentiful Sunday but that is of little effect as even colder air surges into the area. Luckily winds will be a little lighter Friday morning, but still a southwesterly breeze up to 6 miles per hour will bring wind chills down to the low teens under mostly clear skies. This will help lead to clearing skies behind the aforementioned cold front, but the sunshine will also come with a chill in the air. WE can see some minor accumulations from United States 24 northward, and even a coating with some snow showers down toward I-70. Highs today will be in the upper 30s with mostly sunny skies. However, it still bears watching just in case, especially towards the I-95 corridor.

1/10 (→): A very light snow band remains just a remote possibility near and east of city Friday night as moisture is in short supply.

Light snow and rain has been spotted in and around the city of Lubbock but we have no accumulation of snow to report.

Sunday: Partly cloudy and chilly. However when it's as cold as it's going to be today any wind at all will produce a wind chill.

The cold pattern will be more about persistence than intensity.
