Record temperatures once again likely through Colorado Springs and Pueblo later today. Dry air, full sunshine and down slope winds all work together to bring very warm air back through southern Colorado. The breeze will be stronger through the afternoon and while there are no Red Flag Warnings, fire danger is becoming elevated.
