Today’s Forecast:
Today is the final day of summer… but it’s going to feel more like a Fall afternoon! Most of southern Colorado will enjoy a dry and sunny day, but the morning may be a bit wetter and cloudier for areas south of highway 50 this morning. A cold front light night is throwing clouds and a few showers in the highway 50 corridor this morning and will push weak moisture up into the southern mountains in the I-25 corridor. Not much rain will fall and what does will be light with sunshine returning to the south this afternoon.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 68; Low – 46. Mostly sunny today with stronger afternoon winds and gorgeous high temperatures.

PUEBLO: High – 72; Low – 47. Cloudier skies in the morning with sunshine through the afternoon and a decent breeze out of the south.

CANON CITY: High – 70; Low – 48. Mostly sunny today with gorgeous temperatures and a light breeze.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 64; Low – 38. Mostly sunny with a light wind and cool, crisp high temperatures.

TRI-LAKES: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Mostly sunny with a stronger afternoon breeze and beautiful temps.

PLAINS: High – 70s; Low – 40s. Cloudier in the morning in the Arkansas river valley and areas to the south with a few showers likely throgh Otero, Bent and Las Animas counties through the early hours. Sunshine and beautiful temperatures return by lunch.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Cloudy skies and a few isolated showers early in the morning with sunny skies and gorgeous temperatures through the afternoon.

Fall starts tomorrow… but in a reversal of today, it’ll feel a bit more like Summer! Warmth returns on Saturday with dry and sunny skies as Colorado Springs warms to the lower 80s and Pueblo into the mid 80s. The bigger heat will come on Sunday with Springs into the mid 80s and Pueblo right near 90, a warm one for the chile festival. Cooler air will return early next week with a few rain chances Monday and Tuesday.
