A dusting of snow covers the rock formations at the Garden of the Gods.

Weather outlook on Monday, Dec. 14, 2020, along with a look ahead at Thanksgiving week, from KKTV meteorologist Sydney Jackson.

Snow is expected Monday evening with greater chances of precipitation overnight, the National Weather Service in Pueblo predicts.

Monday starts off mostly cloudy with a 30% chance of snow after 5 p.m. and winds between 5 and 10 mph.

Much of the Colorado Springs area received a little over an inch of snow between Friday and Saturday, the weather service said. The area's last dusting of snow was early November, putting Colorado behind its typical amount of snowfall compared to most years, weather service meteorologist Makoto Moore said.
