Today’s Forecast:
Hurricane Rosa has turned into Tropical Storm Rosa and all the moisture associate with that storm is on the move into southern Colorado. Cloudy skies will be the biggest impact from Rosa over southern Colorado because the mountains to our west will soak up most of the rain! We still have the chance for scattered showers to hop over Pikes Peak and the Sangres this afternoon.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 74; Low – 53. Light showers or sprinkles are possible this morning but rain remains more likely this afternoon anytime after 3pm as the energy from Rosa gets closer. Highs will stay mild under the cloud cover.

PUEBLO: High – 79; Low – 54. While light rain is possible for Pueblo today, it’s looking like the city will stay pretty dry for most of the day. Cloud cover will be thick and temperatures will stay just under 80 this afternoon.

CANON CITY: High – 76; Low – 56. Light showers are possible today, mainly in the afternoon but it’s possible a bit of moisture will sneak into Canon City this morning. It’ll stay cloudy and mild today.

WOODLAND PARK: High – 67; Low – 47. Scattered showers are likely today, especially in the afternoon as moisture from Rosa moves into the mountains. A brief heavy rain is possible at times but flooding is not expected.

TRI-LAKES: High – 60s; Low – 40s. Showers are possible early this morning but rain is much more likely in the afternoon with a few heavy rains possible up on the north side of the Palmer Divide.

PLAINS: High – 70/80s; Low – 50s. The plains are very likely to stay cloudy and dry with temperatures reaching the upper 70s and a few low 80s down south by the NM border.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High – 70s; Low – 50s. Light showers are possible this morning, especially in the Sangres but later this afternoon we still could see a few isolated showers, mainly over the taller terrain.

Moisture from Rosa will be moving through Colorado until very early Wednesday morning, but most of the moisture will stay west of our area. Early Tuesday morning some light showers are possible in the area but most of Saturday afternoon looks dry. Down slope winds and sunshine keep Wednesday looking pretty warm and dry. A cold front kicks temperatures back into the 60s and 70s on Thursday with a very strong chance for afternoon rain.
