FRIDAY NIGHT FORECAST
Mostly sunny skies will become partly cloudy overnight. It is not out of the question we could have an isolated shower develop in the Pike's Peak region through sunset. Lows will be in the 30°s and 40°s. (Colorado Springs: 39° | Pueblo: 41°)
We should start Saturday morning with some sunshine. Temperatures will likely climb quickly through the morning before clouds begin to increase from the west. Highs will get in to the 70°s and 80°s. (Colorado Springs: 72° | Pueblo: 80°)
Winds will begin to pick-up through the day and the air over southeast Colorado should be relatively dry. The National Weather Service will be issuing a Red Flag Warning for parts of southeast Colorado generally east of I-25 and south of U.S. 50. The warning is in effect from 1pm until 8pm Saturday.
LATE WEEKEND STORM
A cold front will move through the region Sunday. Temperatures will likely fall through the afternoon and evening. Rain will begin to develop by afternoon. Rain will change over to snow later Sunday afternoon/evening.
