Tonight’s Forecast:
As usual, any storms still going by evening, dry up…skies clear up this evening, and temps stay warm. We watch Tropical Depression "Bud", moving north through the Gulf of California, and into New Mexico, and in to our State Saturday and Saturday Night. So, expect showers to break out later Saturday afternoon, which could become torrential rain for a few hours at night, and then for Sunday through Tuesday, on and off T-showers most frequently in the afternoons. It will certainly raise the moisture levels in the air, and in the soil, both of which are good for us.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low – 63, High – 83. Tonight, clearing up with a light south wind. Early sun Saturday,clouding up with T-showers developing mid or late afternoon.

PUEBLO: Low – 65, High – 90. Clearing, clear overnight tonight with a light south wind. Early sun Saturday,clouding up with T-showers developing early or mid afternoon.

CANON CITY: Low – 65, High – 88. Clearing, clear overnight tonight with a light south wind. Early sun Saturday,clouding up with T-showers developing early or mid afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: Low – 53, High – 75. Clearing, clear overnight tonight with a light south wind. Early sun Saturday,clouding up with T-showers developing mid or late afternoon.

TRI-LAKES: Low – 58, High – 80. Clearing, clear overnight tonight with a light south wind. Early sun Saturday,clouding up with T-showers developing mid or late afternoon.

PLAINS: Low – 67, High – 92. Clearing, clear overnight tonight with a light south wind. Early sun Saturday,clouding up with T-showers developing early or mid afternoon.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low – 67, High – 92. Clearing, clear overnight tonight with a light south wind. Early sun Saturday,clouding up with T-showers developing early or mid afternoon. Rains may be heavy by evening.


NEXT WEATHER MAKER: It’s all about "Bud". The only real effect is the rainfall. Ordinarily, it would be easy to predict heavy rains, even flooding…but Bud has to come across Mexico and New Mexico, both with a lot of high terrain, which breaks up a storm and whose many mountains absorb much of the blow. So, expect thundershowers by mid or late Saturday afternoon here, and then a wetter pattern in its wake for several days to come, simply because of the added moisture to the air.
