<![CDATA[Pikes Peak region gets taste of cold, snow; travel turns difficult]]> By Kassondra Cloos kassondra.cloos@gazette.com - http://gazette.com/pikes-peak-region-gets-taste-of-cold-snow-travel-turns-difficult/article/1548524?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/pikes-peak-region-gets-taste-of-cold-snow-travel-turns-difficult/article/1548524?custom_click=rss

It might have seemed like Jack Frost was gone for good, but it turns out he's just playing hide-and-seek.

A bit of chilly winter weather is expected to hit the Pikes Peak region Wednesday for a brief stint of cold, clouds and even snow in some areas. But on Thursday, temps will go back up to the 50s, said Peggy Perales, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

The high Wednesday is expected to be 45 degrees, with a chance of rain showers and thunderstorms in the afternoon and traces of snow in higher elevation areas. Northern and western El Paso County were forecast to have the highest chances for snow, and by 9 a.m. snow had fallen in the northern part of El Paso County and parts of Teller County.

<![CDATA[Sunshine and warmer temperatures headed to Pikes Peak region]]> By Kassondra Cloos kassondra.cloos@gazette.com - http://gazette.com/sunshine-and-warmer-temperatures-headed-to-pikes-peak-region/article/1548248?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/sunshine-and-warmer-temperatures-headed-to-pikes-peak-region/article/1548248?custom_click=rss

Put away the umbrellas, snowboots and winter coats and dig out the sunglasses, brightly colored clothes and hiking boots.

Spring is back - at least for the moment.

Another stint of precipitation could be headed toward the Pikes Peak region at the end of next week, but in the meantime nice weather is on the way, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

Parts of the region were snowy and cold on Thursday morning, but sunny, warm weather is expected for the next several days. There's a small chance, just 10 percent to 20 percent, of rain Sunday and Monday, but it's otherwise expected to be sunny and warm.

Now's a good time to start planning some outdoor weekend fun.

Just don't forget the sunscreen.

Winter may not go without a fight.

Northern El Paso County, Woodland Park and Florissant received at least 6 inches of snow while rain fell across much of Colorado Springs and El Paso County, all due to a storm churning moisture from the Pacific Ocean into central Colorado, according to the National Weather Service in Pueblo.

The storm began moving out of El Paso County on late Thursday morning, but parts of Teller County continued receiving snow.

A winter weather advisory remained in effect until 9 p.m. Thursday for Teller County and the Rampart Range, which could receive 6 to 12 inches of snow. Up to 18 inches of snow is possible atop Pikes Peak, where a winter storm warning was issued.

<![CDATA[Heat wave continues Monday with record high in Colorado Springs]]> BY TOM ROEDER tom.roeder@gazette.com - http://gazette.com/heat-wave-continues-monday-with-record-high-in-colorado-springs/article/1548016?custom_click=rss http://gazette.com/heat-wave-continues-monday-with-record-high-in-colorado-springs/article/1548016?custom_click=rss

Colorado Springs and much of the state saw record temperatures Monday with a high topping 78 degrees in the city, besting a record set in 2012.

Also seeing record highs were Denver at 77 degrees, Pueblo, which topped out at 81, and Montrose, which reached 71, according to The Associated Press.

A ridge of high pressure brought summerlike temperatures to the final days of winter in Colorado, said KKTV forecaster Sarah Schwabe. But the heat was just a mirage.

"It is all coming to an end," Schwabe said. "Tomorrow (Tuesday) it will be in the 40s."

The highs Monday drove warnings of fire danger throughout the state and in Colorado Springs, which hadn't seen measurable rain or snow since March 5.
