Colorado Springs might see a dusting of snow before the end of this week's cold spell, meteorologists say.
The National Weather Service in Pueblo predicted a high of 32 degrees and low of 24 degrees Thursday with a 20 percent chance of snow showers before 1 a.m.
"Better flurry chances move into northern El Paso County and Teller County this afternoon and evening," said Gazette news partner KKTV. "The better snow chances will be for the mountains SW of Pueblo, where up to 2" is possible."
Winds also are expected to pick up in the afternoon, with wind chills in the teens and single digits, KKTV said.
The sun will come out and temperatures will rise significantly Friday, with highs expected in the low to mid-50s. The balmy weather will continue Saturday and Sunday, with highs of 60 degrees and 59 degrees, respectively.
The average high for this week of December is 43 degrees. Saturday will fall short of the record high temperature of 70 degrees set in 1957,
