By Andrea Sinclair Published: October 20, 2013

Low temperatures and storm systems moving over northern El Paso County could drop as much as 3 inches of snow over sections of the Interstate 25 corridor and the southeastern plains Sunday night, according to the National Weather Service.

A hazardous weather outlook was issued by the weather service, in effect until Monday morning, as the storm system is expected to impact portions of south-central and southeastern Colorado starting late Sunday afternoon.

A 60 percent chance of rain and snow with an overnight low of 29 degrees will allow between one to 3 inches of snow to accumulate overnight in northern El Paso County, particularly over Monument Ridge and Rampart Range, northern Colorado Springs and Teller County, according to the weather service.

The scattered snow showers will dissipate Monday morning across the far southeast plains and central mountains.

A high of 54 degrees in Colorado Springs and mid 50s for most of El Paso County with mostly sunny skies are in the forecast for Monday, the weather service stated.
