Today’s Forecast:
Record tying or breaking heat is on the way for the holiday weekend with today looking pretty hot as well. Plenty of sunshine and dry ground will work together today to send highs in the upper 80s in Colorado Springs and mid 90s for Pueblo. The winds will be light today but over the weekend they will get much stronger and bring back elevated fire danger. Fire Weather Watches are in place for most of the I-25 corridor and west into the mountains Saturday but they will likely be turned into Red Flag Warnings. We’ll be at or above the record temperatures for both Saturday and Sunday so be sure and drink plenty of water when you’re out today and through the weekend.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 67; Low – 33. Sunny, hot and dry. Cool and mild tonight.

PUEBLO: High – 67; Low – 33. Sunny, very hot and dry. Cool and mild tonight.

CANON CITY: High – 67; Low – 33. Sunny, hot and dry. Cool and mild tonight.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 67; Low – 33. Sunny with some afternoon clouds, warm and dry. Cool and mild tonight.

TRI-LAKES: High – 67; Low – 33. Sunny, very warm and dry. Cool and mild tonight.

PLAINS: High – 67; Low – 33. Sunny, very hot and dry. Cool and mild tonight.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 67; Low – 33. Sunny, hot and dry. Cool and mild tonight.

Memorial Day looks very nice with a cold front dropping temperatures about 5 degrees cooler than we’ll see over the weekend. The wind will stay strong Memorial day so fire danger will stay very high. We are looking dry on Memorial Day at the moment for most of the lower elevations but a few areas in the mountains might see some spotty afternoon thunderstorms. Better rain chances return next week by Wednesday with more heat to follow into the weekend.
