Fog could linger overnight, warmer temps in forecast for Colorado Springs

Snow, ice and dense fog made life difficult for Colorado Springs residents, but, according to the National Weather Service, higher temperatures and sunny skies were in the forecast for the week ahead.

Heavy fog in northeast Colorado Springs caused traffic light sensors to malfunction Saturday, according to city officials.

Sensors were not being triggered and lights were not cycling, police said, causing safety hazards.

The sensors were disabled and the signals were set on timers to automatically cycle, regardless of traffic flow, a city spokesperson said.

Monday was expected to be mostly sunny with a high near 50 degrees and mild winds about 5 mph, the weather service said.

Partly cloudy skies and a low of 27 were in the forecast for Monday night, warming back up to the low 50s by Tuesday.

Despite favorable predictions, the weather service issued a hazardous weather outlook for portions of central, east-central, south-central and southeast Colorado, predicting scattered snow showers across higher elevations in the Rampart Range, the Sangre de Cristo Mountains, El Paso, Fremont and Teller counties.

Spotty and light accumulations of up to an inch could be possible overnight, the weather service said.

The central mountains, especially in the far eastern plains, could get light to moderate snowfall throughout the week.
