Today’s Forecast:
A cold front overnight cooled southern Colorado down this morning and brought lighter winds to the area. This will be very short lived as stronger winds out of the south and southwest bring back Red Flag Warnings to the southern half of our viewing area. We’ll see mostly cloudy skies, maybe a few breaks of sun off and on, through the day with temperatures still fairly warm. Colorado Springs will warm into the upper 60s and Pueblo to the upper 70s. We’ll stay dry today but we can’t rule out an isolated shower over the mountains to our west. Tonight we should stay mainly dry for much of the area but rain will be on the way for the morning from the west so those of you who live west of I-25, you could see the moisture first early Wednesday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 67; Low – 33. Cloudy, windy and warm today. Breezy and dry tonight.

PUEBLO: High – 67; Low – 33. Cloudy, warm and very windy with Red Flag Warnings till 8pm tonight. Winds lighten up this evening after 8pm.

CANON CITY: High – 67; Low – 33. Cloudy, breezy and warm today. Breezy and dry tonight.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 67; Low – 33. Cloudy, windy and mild today. Mainly dry most of tonight but early morning showers, even a brief snow is likely.

TRI-LAKES: High – 67; Low – 33. Cloudy, breezy and mild today. Breezy and dry tonight.
