Detailed Forecast

Tonight: Freeze Warnings go back into effect for the lower Arkansas River Valley, Pueblo and El Paso Co. beginning at 2AM.  It's going to get cold, with many areas hovering around the freezing mark.  Some patchy fog may develop across portions of northeastern Colorado, we'll monitor that closely overnight.

Halloween:  Temperatures will be very similar to Thursday's, but it may feel slightly cooler because we are expecting more wind.  Winds will increase through the afternoon, with speeds reaching between 10 and 20mph along the interstate... with 20 to 30 mph winds farther east over the plains.  The winds will gradually die down through the late evening, but the wind will be an issue for early trick-or-treaters.

Extended:  Our next storm system arrives Sunday/Monday, and will bring our next significant cool down and our next chance for rain and snow.  It is very possible that we may get enough rain and snow on the Palmer Divide to cause a sloppy Monday morning drive... something we'll be monitoring very closely.  While the mountains and the Palmer Divide could get some light snow, most will just see rain.  This storm systems gets out of here by Tuesday, with mild and quiet conditions returning.
