Today’s Forecast:
After record highs yesterday we’ll run a few degrees cooler today. It’ll still be hot with highs in the 80’s and 90’s. A little more sunshine in the mix today as drier air moves in. Winds will be strong during the second half of the day and fire danger will be an issue. More Red Flag Warnings today along and west of I-25. Areas of the far eastern plains will have the only potential for moisture today. A couple of the showers/storms that develop near the Kansas line could be on the strong to severe side, with winds and hail being the main concerns. 

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 86; Low – 54. A hot day with high fire danger.

PUEBLO: High – 95; Low – 62. Another hot one with red flag warnings..

CANON CITY: High – 92; Low – 56. Hot and windy with high fire danger.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 78; Low – 45. Red flag warnings and warm temperatures.

TRI-LAKES: High – 80’s; Low – 40’s. A hot day with high fire danger.

PLAINS: High – 90’s; Low – 60’s. Another hot day. A small chance for a strong to severe pm storm.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 90’s; Low – 60’s. Red flag warnings and hot temperatures.

Memorial Day should be a touch more comfortable with highs in the 70’s and 80’s. We’ll have a small chance for a stray shower/storm, especially for the plains and the Palmer Divide. Winds will be on the strong side again and we’ll have another round of red flag warnings. 70’s and 80’s hold on through Wednesday. A stray shower/storm will be possible on Tuesday, but Wednesday will be the best chance for moisture this week and there’s a chance any of those storms could be on the strong to severe side. The rest of the week will be hot and dry with highs back in the 80’s and 90’s through Friday.
