TODAY: Much toastier than average today with dry skies expected for Colorado Springs and Pueblo. High temps this afternoon will be 87 in the Springs and 94 in Pueblo...those highs are 8 degrees hotter than our average highs. By late today it is possible to see an isolated storm or two near Trinidad and another chance for overnight storms for La Junta, Lamar and Springfield. Storms on the eastern plains will be a product of a cool front that arrives.
TONIGHT: With the passage of that front we'll expect a little bit of a breeze...especially early in the day.
WEDNESDAY: Dry skies again with temps at least 8-10 degrees cooler than today! It will be a little breezy in the morning and at times in the early afternoon. Expect winds at about 10-20 mph from the north/northwest behind that front.
THURSDAY: Dry yet again with temps about 4-6 degrees warmer than Wednesday. Skies will be mostly sunny for most of the day before yet another cool front pushes into eastern Colorado. That second front means increasing clouds by late afternoon/evening along the Front Range and on the plains and falling temps.
FRIDAY: Cloudier skies and MUCH cooler temps expected. Highs to end the week will be about 10-12 degrees cooler than Thursday. Skies start a little cloudier than they will finish.
SATURDAY: Sunny to mostly sunny and just gorgeous! High temps should equal our cooler high temps on Friday with no storms expected for the eastern half of Colorado...great news if you are taking part in the Pikes Peak Challenge on Saturday morning!
SUNDAY: Still dry for the lower and likely the higher elevations. You notice a little bit of a warming trend with high temps by afternoon a few degrees warmer than Saturday.
MONDAY: Not much change in the weather as a warm, dry trend looks to be setting-up. Temps will be warmer than average with plenty of sunshine and only a slight chance of a storm or two over the higher elevations.
