A nice mild and dry stretch is ahead for Southern Colorado!
Temperatures today will top out about 15 degrees above average for this time of year in the 50s with a few locations possibly reaching 60. Temperatures across the lower elevations will continue to warm into the first half of the workweek with highs in the low to mid 60s across most of the lower elevations Monday through Wednesday. Expect plenty of sunshine and dry conditions with the mild temps.
A cold front will move through the region Thursday. Colder air will move in behind the front making for a cold end to the week with highs in the 30s/40s Friday and Saturday. There doesn't look to be a lot of moisture with this system though a few flurries are possible throughout the day Friday with some light snow at times in the mountains.
