We had another warm day with temperatures in the 80°s and lower 90°s Sunday. These are temperatures we normally should have in mid-June. Winds have also been gusting 25 to 35 mph this afternoon. Gusty winds, warm temperatures and low humidity has caused the National Weather Service to issue a Red Flag Warning for Fremont and El Pas counties. The warning is in effect until 7pm Sunday evening.
Overnight temperatures should remain mild with lows in the 40°s and 50°s. (Colorado Springs: 52° | Pueblo: 48°)
We should start Monday sunny. This will allow temperatures to quickly rise during the morning. Expect to see a few more clouds developing around Pikes Peak during the afternoon turning skies mostly sunny to partly sunny around Colorado Springs.
Temperatures will again remain warm with highs topping out in the 80°s and lower 90°s. (Colorado Springs: 82° | Pueblo: 89°) Winds will again be breezy through the day with winds gusting up to 30-35 mph at times during the afternoon.
Long range we should remain warm through Tuesday and in some places Wednesday. A Pacific storm will arrive in the mountains late Wednesday which could bring a few showers or a thunderstorm to northern portions of the KOAA viewing area Wednesday evening/night. There will be a chance for a few showers and maybe a thunderstorm during the day Thursday. We will see cooler temperatures in place Thursday and Friday and then temperatures go back up. - Meteorologist John Dissauer
