Tonight’s Forecast: Dry tonight as the disturbance that brought a few showers earlier today to the mountains and plains moves east. Shortly after sunset, gusty southwesterly winds will significantly decrease from I-25 west into the mountains. Areas east of I-25 will see northerly wind gusts to 20 mph overnight tonight. Overnight temperatures will be chilly under mostly clear skies.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low - 40; High - 67. Upper 30s and lower 40s early Saturday will give way to a bright and mild afternoon. Breezy southeast winds during the day around 10-15 mph in the Springs.

PUEBLO: Low - 40; High - 72. Cooling down on Saturday, but with plenty of sunshine overhead, it should be a great start to the weekend.

CANON CITY: Low - 43; High - 70. A near perfect start to the weekend, with highs near 70 degrees. South winds around 10 to 15 mph will keep it breezy.

WOODLAND PARK: Low - 34; High - 62. Areas of frost early Saturday in the Teller County mountains, but then sunny and mild for the rest of the day.

TRI-LAKES: Low - 30s/40s; High - 60s. We'll stay above freezing Friday night, but chilly nonetheless heading into Saturday morning. 60s will follow for the afternoon hours.

PLAINS: Low - 40s/50s; High - 60s/70s. Dry skies and mild temperatures for the first part of the weekend. Highs will warm into the 60s to low 70s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low - 40s; High - 70s. A bright and cooler start to the weekend for southern regions. Highs will warm into the 70s for the afternoon.

Extended Outlook: Sunday will be cooler than Saturday as a second cold front moves through, with gusty north winds to end the weekend. Cold temperatures behind the front will likely bring near to below freezing temperatures across much of Southern Colorado by Monday morning. In spite of cold morning temperatures Monday, afternoon highs will warm through the middle of the week. Late next week, a major blast of cold air will drop in from Canada. Along with the cold, the first snowfall of the season could turn up as well.
