Today’s Forecast:
The big story today is cooler and cloudier weather through southern Colorado, with scattered showers staying most south of Highway 50 in Las Animas County. We could still see a few showers in northern Fremont County drift through Teller and El Paso County this evening, but the rain will overwhelmingly be south near Trinidad and the surrounding towns in eastern Las Animas County. WE should dry out across the region by Friday morning.
