It'll be another warm one across Southern Colorado today. Expect well above average highs in the 80s/90s for the Front Range and Southeastern Plains. It'll be more comfortable up over the higher terrain with highs this afternoon in the 60s/70s there. Skies will be mostly sunny with no rain in the forecast for today due to a very dry atmosphere. Because of that plus dry fuels on the ground and a breezy at times southwest wind, fire danger remains high for the region.
Memorial Day looks great for any outdoor plans with mostly sunny skies expected once again. The warmth continues into the holiday with highs warming back up into the 80s/90s.
A system will bring cooler, more comfortable temperatures to Southern Colorado for the middle of the week. Unfortunately, it won't bring us much in the way of rain. The Pikes Peak region and the Southeastern Plains have only a slight chance of rain come Wednesday and Thursday.
