Cloudy, overcast weather moved into the region Sunday and dropped a few inches of snow on mountain towns west of Colorado Springs.
Cripple Creek reported three inches of snow Sunday morning and Woodland Park reported one inch. Monument and Black Forest reported two-tenths of an inch, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.
The cloudy skies are expected to cover Colorado Springs for most of the week ahead, and weather service meteorologists said residents can expect windy and possibly rainy weather.
Cooler temperatures are expected, with highs reaching into the upper 50s and lower 60s, forecasters said.
There's a chance of isolated showers Monday and Wednesday.
"We probably won't see sunny skies again until the weekend," said meteorologist Makoto Moore. "Things should start clearing up on Friday and then temperatures will climb back into the 70s on Saturday and Sunday."
Wind gusts between 15 and 20 mph are expected each day, and chances for precipitation are stronger in the elevated regions, Moore said.
"We'll probably get a few small bursts of weather that will bring isolated showers, but it won't be very much this week," he said. "Mostly, it's just going to be overcast and windy."
