Steady showers will be falling across the region from the morning and then again well into the afternoon as more rain pushes in from New Mexico. Drier air will push in by this evening but the plains will keep rain going well into the overnight hours. Heavy cloud cover and rain will keep temperatures from climbing much today, highs will be in the low to mid 50s at best from Springs to Pueblo.

Clearing skies tonight will allow for a chilly start to Thursday morning. Full sunshine will then quickly warm temperatures into the 60s in the Springs and low 70s for Pueblo!

Saturday looks like the warmest day in the extended forecast with temps into the low to mid 70s across the lower elevations. No rain or snow is in the forecast until Halloween morning.
