Low pressure over the Pacific Northwest and high pressure over the Great Plains will work together to send a surge of warm air into Colorado today. The low pressure will stay far enough north, however, that rain is not likely. The morning clouds will give way to sunshine by midday, and temperatures will warm into the 70's for all but the high elevations by noon.
High temperatures will be in the lower 80's around Colorado Springs with 60's and 70's for Teller County and Monument Hill and mid-to-upper 80's along and south of the Arkansas River, including Pueblo and Cañon City.
Late this week a disturbance, currently over the North Pacific between Russia and the Aleutian Islands, will move through. With it, temperatures will plummet to unseasonably cold readings. Rain will likely fall along most of the I-25 corridor, but above 7,000 feet the precipitation likely will fall as snow.
