Today’s Forecast:
High winds and low daytime humidity will prompted Red Flag Warnings across almost all of southern Colorado from the afternoon through the early evening. Fire danger will be extremely high, as most warned areas are also under a moderate drought. We'll stay dry today with a bit more cloud cover through the afternoon. Overnight we'll see temperatures fall into the 30s and 40s with lighter winds.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 72; Low: 39. Warm and windy across the region with high fire danger and wind gusts between 30 to 40 mph.

PUEBLO: High: 77; Low: 41. Very warm with strong daytime winds and gusts between 40 to 50 mph.

CANON CITY: High: 75; Low: 42. Very warm with strong daytime winds and gusts between 40 to 50 mph.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 58; Low: 31. Mild and windy today with gusts between 25 to 35 mph.

TRI-LAKES: High: 60s; Low: 320s. Warm and windy with daytime wind gusts in the 30 to 40 mph range.

PLAINS: High: 70s; Low: 40s. Very warm and windy with wind gusts ranging from 30 to 50 mph across the region.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 60s; Low: 40s. Warm with very strong wind gusts ranging from 45 to 55 mph in the afternoon.

Extended Outlook:
Thursday is likely going to be a weather alert day for wind as we'll see wind gusts similar to what happens today. We'll be about the same temperature tomorrow, maybe just a couple degrees cooler in a few places. We still have a chance for rain and snow Friday night but most of that would be gone by early Saturday morning. Snow totals look confined mostly to the Pikes Peak Region, and they should be light overall.
