Tri-Lakes forecast: Low: 40s; High: 50s/60s; The words "cool" and "showery" will best sum up our weather on Tuesday as another round of wet weather will be possible mainly from the late afternoon to evening hours.

Plains forecast: Low: 40s/50s; High: 60s/70s; After staying the 80s the past few days, we'll see more noticeable cooling for the Plains on Tuesday. Along with the cool down, we'll see a chance for showers during the afternoon and evening hours.

Walsenburg and Trinidad forecast: Low: 40s; High: 60s; A cool and unsettled day, with most of the more widespread rain expected to occur across the southern I-25 corridor.

Mountains forecast: Low: 30s; High: 40s/50s; Rain and snow will continue to impact the mountains on Tuesday, with snow levels generally expected to remain near 10,000 feet.

Extended outlook forecast:
The low pressure system that's been keeping the cloudy and unsettled weather around since the weekend will finally move east on Wednesday, allowing for high pressure to build into the Great Basin. Recycled moisture Wednesday afternoon could lead to a few hit or miss showers. Then by Thursday, drier air is expected to build into Southern Colorado. The dry air combined with fall-like temperatures will make for a pretty nice stretch of weather in our extended forecast.
