Tonight's Forecast:
A cold front will drop into Southern Colorado this evening, and bring gusty winds to the region through the overnight hours. Northerly wind gusts to 35 mph will be possible after the front passes through. Snow is not expected for the Plains, but some light snow will be possible tonight in the mountains.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 28; High: 47. Sunday will be a touch cooler and breezier compared to Saturday, but still quite nice for this time of the year.

PUEBLO: Low: 25; High: 51. An overnight cold front will bring a cooler day to Pueblo County on Sunday. Highs behind the front will be around 10-15 degrees cooler than Saturday.

CANON CITY: Low: 29; High: 49. Not as warm as Saturday, but still a pretty nice day to close out the weekend. Enjoy it because unsettled weather returns early next week.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 17; High: 33. Much colder on Saturday, with afternoon highs only warming into the lower to middle 30s across Fremont County. Some mountain snow showers will be possible by Sunday night.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 40s. An overnight cold front will bring gusty conditions to northern El Paso County through early Sunday morning. What follows for the rest of the day will be a cooler and breezy day, with highs in the 40s.

PLAINS: Low: 20s; High: 40s/50s. Breezy and cooler on Sunday, with mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies expected across the eastern Plains.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 40s. Sunday's forecast will feature a mix of sun and clouds, breezy north winds and slightly cooler temperatures.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 0/10s; High: 10s/20s. Snow showers will be possible across the mountains on Sunday, with heavier snow likely to develop over the San Juan Mountains starting on Sunday night.

Extended Outlook:
An area of low pressure will move towards Colorado on Monday, with mountain snow and colder temperatures for all areas. Snow showers should start to migrate east into the Plains by Monday afternoon and evening, with light snow at times through the day on Tuesday. For the Plains, this isn't looking like a big impact system, but details will become clearer as the storm moves onshore later this weekend. Dry and cold weather will follow for the final few days of 2020, with a return to light snow chances by New Year's Day.
