Colorado Springs enjoyed sunny skies and spring-like conditions Monday as temperatures reached up to 55 degrees.

But a significant cool down could hit the Pikes Peak region as there's a chance of snow Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service.

Freezing drizzle could start falling throughout El Paso County especially after 3 a.m. Tuesday, with areas of freezing fog and an overnight low of 23 degrees. On Tuesday, there's a 30 percent chance of about a tenth of an inch of snow between 11 a.m. and 1 p.m., followed by freezing rain, with temperatures reaching the low 40s, the weather service said.

Higher elevations in the central mountains, across Teller County and the Palmer Divide could see up to two inches of snow.

Snow could continue falling before 11 p.m. with low temperatures dropping as low as 19 degrees Tuesday night, according to the weather service.

Wednesday's outlook is mostly sunny with a high near 47 and an overnight low of about 31 degrees, with calm winds.

Gusty winds of 20 to 40 mph developed along and west of the Interstate 25 corridor Monday. Combined with warm temperatures and low relative humidity it produced critical fire conditions, mainly across Pueblo, Huerfano and western portions of Las Animas counties, according to weather service forecasts.

Blowing dust and reduced visibility across portions of I-25, especially south of Pueblo, could cause hazardous traffic conditions.
