Tonight's Forecast:
What little storm activity we've seen today over the far east Plains of Southern Colorado will fizzle out by 8 pm, leaving us dry during the overnight hours. The big story by Monday morning will be the arrival of our next cold front, which will bring some changes to the forecast early this week.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 60; High: 87. Highs will be around 5 to 8 degrees cooler on Monday. While widespread rainfall is not expected, a morning cold front will help to spark a few isolated thunderstorms by the afternoon and evening hours.

PUEBLO: Low: 62; High: 93. After almost tying a record high on Sunday, our weather on Monday will be cooler and breezy, with a few afternoon and evening thunderstorms possible.

CANON CITY: Low: 63; High: 91. Breezy in the morning, with spotty afternoon and evening thunderstorms. Highs on Monday will be cooler and more comfortable than this past weekend.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 52; High: 77. A beautiful and breezy day as we head back to work on Monday, with spotty afternoon thunderstorms possible throughout Teller County.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 80s. Monday's forecast will be cooler and breezier than what we saw this past weekend, with a few isolated thunderstorms possible during the afternoon and evening hours.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 80s/90s. The work week will start out on the cooler side as our forecast will no longer feature triple digit temps. Showers and thunderstorms will be possible from late afternoon through late evening.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s/60s; High: 80s/90s. Cooler highs on Monday, with the potential for a few spotty thunderstorms during the afternoon and evening hours. Storms are not expected to become severe.

Extended Outlook:
We'll see similar chances for showers and thunderstorms on Tuesday across Southern Colorado. Although the storms will be spotty in nature, there's a slightly better chance of these storms reaching strong to severe criteria, mainly for areas well east of I-25. Precipitation chances lower through the rest of the week, with highs once again getting pretty toasty, even for mid August standards.
