The above average temperatures Southern Colorado has seen over the long holiday weekend will soon be a thing of the past.
It'll be dry and very warm once again Tuesday with a breezy southwest wind gusting up to 30 mph at times resulting in high fire danger, but cooler air is forecast to move in by Wednesday. A system over the Pacific Northwest will usher in more seasonal temps for the second half of the week. Expect highs in the 70s/80s Wednesday through the weekend.
The midweek system will also bring isolated showers and storms to the mountains Tuesday through Thursday with the Pikes Peak region and the Southeastern Plains holding on to an isolated shot of a shower or storm mainly on Wednesday.
As of right now, next weekend looks dry with a mix of clouds and sun around.
