Tonight's Forecast:
A cold front will drop through Southern Colorado tonight, and bring with it gusty winds and some light rain showers. The Palmer Divide and mountain areas could end up seeing some light snow, or a rain/snow mix. There's not a ton of moisture to work with, so what we see won't amount to much.

The other big story will be the potential for a freeze tonight for areas near and above the 7,000 foot level. Below this, it will still be cold. Overnight lows in the Springs and Pueblo will fall down to the 30s by Monday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 34; High: 61. Better not forget your jacket in the morning as it will be a cold start to our Monday. Sunshine will prevail by the afternoon, with highs rebounding into the lower 60s.

PUEBLO: Low: 37; High: 64. Dry skies and light winds on Monday, with cold morning temperatures giving way to a nice fall-like afternoon.

CANON CITY: Low: 39; High: 62. Fall-like weather will continue on Monday. Lows will be cold in the morning, with afternoon highs nice and pleasant under sunny skies.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 25; High: 53. Cold weather will settle in during the overnight hours, with temperatures Monday morning starting out in the middle 20s. Highs will rebound into the 50s under mostly sunny skies.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s/30s; High: 50s/60s. Clearing skies overnight will allow for a cold start to our Monday morning. Highs will recover nicely by the afternoon, with temperatures warming into the 50s and very low 60s.

PLAINS: Low: 30s/40s; High: 60s. Chilly morning lows will give way to a mild and fall-like afternoon, with highs warming into the 60s. The Plains will be quite windy during the day however, with gusts 25 to 35 mph.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 50s/60s. Cold in the morning as lows will start out near the freezing mark. Monday afternoon will still be chilly and breezy, with highs only warming into the upper 50s and lower 60s.

Extended Outlook:
A big ridge of high pressure will park itself over the western third of the country for the rest of the week, keeping our weather dry and warm. Highs will jump up by double digits Tuesday, with further warming on tap Wednesday. A cold front Wednesday night will bring wind and not rain to our forecast, along with a modest cool down Thursday.
