Walsenburg and Trinidad forecast: Low: 40s/50s; High: 60s/70s; Monday may start out with a brief period of dry weather for the southern I-25 corridor, but that looks to change by the afternoon as moisture increases and rain becomes more widespread by the second half of the day and evening.

Extended outlook forecast:
Unsettled weather will continue into Tuesday, with a wet and much cooler day following the passage of a cold front Monday evening. Highs Tuesday will be around 6-10 degrees cooler than Monday, with highs below average for this time of the year. High pressure to west our will begin to influence our weather by Wednesday, with drying skies for the Plains and pleasant, fall-like highs. This will be followed by a nice end to the week for the Plains, but for the mountains, daily rain and snow showers will remain in the forecast.
