The weather is going to be very active this week as we transition to warm and dry back to cool and wet. Red Flag Warnings are going to be in effect across parts of Southern Colorado today, mainly Fremont, El Paso, Pueblo, and Crowley counties. Strong winds out of the East in the afternoon and very low humidity will contribute to high fire danger through the daytime. We'll start with sunshine today but quickly bring clouds through the afternoon. We should stay dry across most of the plains but moisture will be thrown into the Southern mountains and valleys with some rain possible down near the Raton Mesa, generally staying south of highway 50.
