Tonight's Forecast:
Most of today's showers and thunderstorms should come to an end between 8 and 9 pm, just in time for the Fourth of July fireworks. The Eastern Plains however will see storms that could linger much later, perhaps through early Sunday morning. With the leftover moisture tonight, overnight lows will be quite mild across Southern Colorado.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 56; High: 86. A dry and pleasant morning will give way to spotty showers and thunderstorms on Sunday. Our best chances for rain won't come until after 3 pm.

PUEBLO: Low: 59; High: 92. Temperatures on Sunday will be similar to what we saw on Saturday. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible by the afternoon, but shouldn't be as strong nor as widespread.

CANON CITY: Low: 57; High: 89. Sunday's weather should be nicer compared to Saturday. Dry skies early, with spotty afternoon storms over parts of Fremont County.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 49; High: 78. Mostly sunny skies early will give way to mostly cloudy skies by the afternoon, and a chance for scattered showers and thunderstorms.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 70s/80s. A mostly sunny start to the end of the holiday weekend will turn mostly cloudy by the afternoon, with scattered storms possible.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 80s/90s. Warm and not as stormy on Sunday. Highs will top out in the upper 80s and 90s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 80s. Our weather on Sunday won't be as stormy as Saturday, but there will likely still be some scattered afternoon thunderstorms in the area.

Extended Outlook:
A few spotty storms will be possible on both Monday and Tuesday, mainly across the higher elevations. A strong ridge of high pressure that settles in by the middle of the week will bring the heat to Southern Colorado. With highs in the 90s and 100s for the lower elevations, this could be our hottest stretch of days yet.
