HOT and dry today with a lot wind through the afternoon and overnight hours. Winds will be out of the west today, running down the mountains to create down slope flow. These down slope winds will help to heat the air very efficiently, meaning we’ll see high temperatures well above average today. Winds will gust today up to 30 or more mph through the afternoon with a few 40 mph gusts likely down some of the mountains west of Colorado Springs. There will be no rain anywhere across southern Colorado. Tonight a cold front pushes south through the state keeping the winds strong and overnight temperatures mild.
