Increasing winds and dropping temperatures prompted the National Weather Service to issue a freeze warning for Friday night in the Pikes Peak region.
According to the weather service, temperatures for Colorado Springs will drop into the mid 20s overnight with Teller County and higher altitudes dipping to about 20 degrees. The chill will be compounded by strong winds that could gust up to 45 mph in some areas.
The freeze warning is scheduled to run from midnight to 9 a.m. Saturday before the sun comes out and pushes temperatures into the 50s for Saturday and the 60s on Sunday.
While reports a week ago had the area thinking snow, Colorado Springs is only expected to get a trace of rain if any Friday into Saturday. There is a 30 to 40 percent chance of precipitation overnight in Woodland Park and Monument, but less than a tenth of an inch is expected in the areas.
