Stratus clouds will make the morning grey and gloomy across the lower elevations this morning. As the sun heats the air through the clouds, we’ll get them to burn off and the sky will brighten up after 10am. Temperatures will stay cool under the clouds this morning but they will get warm and beautiful with sunshine through the afternoon. There is a small chance for a stray shower in the Pikes Peak region later today, but the majority of southern Colorado will stay dry. Clear skies will stick around through the overnight hours with lows falling into the mid 50s.
