Tonight's Forecast: Unseasonable warmth will continue across Southern Colorado through Christmas Eve, and with warm days will also come warm nights. Overnight lows tonight will generally stay in the 20s and 30s, with the exception of the frigidly cold San Luis Valley. Lows here will be in the single digits and below zero.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 32; High: 65. More great weather ahead on Monday, with highs soaring back into the 60s. Mostly cloudy skies will prevail, with light westerly winds.

PUEBLO: Low: 25; High: 63. No sign of winter here on Monday, with highs warming well into the 60s under mostly cloudy skies.

CANON CITY: Low: 34; High: 65. Above freezing morning temperatures should keep the ice from re-forming tonight. Highs on Monday will be nice and warm, even with mostly cloudy skies.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 31; High: 56. Wear your jackets in the morning on Monday, but shed those layers in the afternoon as highs return to the 50s.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 50s. With an inversion in place, areas around Monument will be warmer tonight than Pueblo. Highs on Monday will top out in the upper 50s.

PLAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 60s/70s. Another beautiful and warm winter day on tap for the Plains of Colorado. Monday's highs will warm into the 60s and 70s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 50s/60s. Lows near freezing Monday morning will warm nicely by the afternoon, with temperatures topping out in the upper 50s and 60s.

Extended Outlook: After a string of unseasonably warm days here in Southern Colorado, cooler weather returns starting Christmas Eve. Highs will cool further through Christmas Day, with temperatures peaking in the 40s and 50s on Wednesday. A White Christmas is not in the cards this year across the lower elevations, but many mountain areas in Colorado should see some fresh snow this year around the holidays.
