Snow is headed to the Pikes Peak region Friday — but not much, the National Weather Service reports.

A system moving in from the northwest is expected to bring trace amounts of snow through the morning hours Friday, said meteorologist Michael Nosko of the agency’s Pueblo office. The storm will plunge temperatures to the 30s Friday afternoon.

“It looks like any precipitation we get is going to be pretty light,” Nosko said.

Areas near Black Forest, Monument, Divide and Woodland Park could see about half an inch of snow but only a trace amount in Colorado Springs, he said.

By late afternoon, snow will taper off.

Temperatures are likely to stay below freezing until noon Friday thanks to a cold front moving through the area Thursday night, Nosko said.

As for the next snowstorm, keep waiting. Forecasts show dry conditions for the next seven days.
