Much of the Pikes Peak region woke up to freezing fog Sunday morning, but the National Weather Service forecasts mostly sunny skies later in the day with a high temperature of 47 in Colorado Springs.
On Sunday night, a low of 28 is expected along with partly cloudy skies before a return of mostly sunny conditions Monday and a forecasted high of 49.
The warming trend continues into the week. The weather service expects the warmest day on Wednesday, when the thermometer could hit 67.
The relatively calm start to the week contrasts with Saturday, when steady snow in Colorado Springs and points north snarled traffic at times.
The Colorado State Patrol reported several wrecks and spin-outs on Interstate 25 north of Monument and other roads in the Pikes Peak region.
Colorado Springs police, firefighters and Humane Society workers were called for a 18-wheeler rollover on Interstate 25 Saturday night.
The wreck happened when the semi-trailer rolled from the southbound lanes near the Fontanero Street exit just after 8 p.m. Three horses and the truck's driver were pulled from the crash. Police had no immediate information on the extent of injuries to the driver or the animals.
