Super Bowl Sunday will be sunny – but cold – in the Springs.
After the last two days of cold and crashes, slick roads and snow, it will be a welcome break.
“The good thing is tomorrow (Sunday) is going to be mostly sunny so everybody will have a good day,” said Peggy Perales, public service desk technician with the National Weather Service in Pueblo.
The forecast for Colorado Springs calls for a high in the mid-20s and a low around 10 Sunday night.
In New York, where the Broncos will take on the Seattle Seahawks for top honors in the NFL, the weather is expected to be in the 40s at kick-off time, but get colder during the game.
A sunny Sunday in the Springs, however, will be replaced by another cold front that will roll into the northern parts of the state Monday and hit the Springs area Monday night with cold and snow.
“Winter has returned after a little warm spell,” Perales said. “The next system will move into the northern areas on Monday and affect Colorado Springs Monday evening through Tuesday with another shot of snow.”
A quick-hitting winter storm Friday night spurred several crashes on slick roads in Colorado Springs. Most of the city’s main roads were cleared Saturday.
A winter weather advisory remains in effect until 5 p.m. Saturday for El Paso and Teller counties as Colorado Springs woke to below freezing temperatures and icy roads.
At 6:30 a.m. Saturday the high was 21 with a wind chill dropping that to 13 degrees.
The first week of February, Perales said, will be about 20 degrees below the average normals in Colorado Springs and Pueblo.
The average high temperature in Pueblo for February is 50, while the average high in the Springs is around 43.
Temperatures are going to be pretty low,” Perales said. “Dress warm and stay dry.”
