After a week of fog, mist, heavy cloud cover and rain, we’re finally going to see a beautiful day! Some patchy fog settled into northern El Paso County, the eastern plains and Pueblo this morning, but any fog will be short-lived with clear skies quickly returning through the morning. We’ll see more sunshine today compared to any day this week, but cloud cover will start to thicken up in the Pikes Peak region later this afternoon and stay thicker overnight. We will be dry across southern Colorado today and tonight.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High – 64; Low – 39. Patchy early morning fog with sunny skies from the morning to the early afternoon with increasing cloud cover through the end of the day. We’ll stay dry with light winds and mild temperatures.

The weekend is still looking pretty awesome across southern Colorado, but maybe not as perfect as we thought earlier in the week. While tomorrow’s chance of staying dry is very high, we still could generate a few isolated showers or thunderstorms through the afternoon. I would plan on tomorrow staying dry and just keep an eye on the skies if you go for a hike, storms would be most likely over the mountains first and then across the plains east of I-25. Sunday and Monday look dry with some of the warmest air we’ve seen this year! Next Tuesday through Thursday we have rain and snow in the forecast with snow most likely at this point in the mountains and over the high elevation areas like Teller County and Monument Hill.
