Tonight's Forecast: Near record setting warmth on Saturday will give way to a fairly mild night across much of Southern Colorado. Many areas along the I-25 corridor will stay above freezing tonight, with decreasing clouds in the forecast through Sunday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 35; High: 71. Another unbelievable winter day ahead on Sunday, with highs nearly 30 degrees above average and a good chance that we'll break the current record high of 70 degrees.

PUEBLO: Low: 28; High: 75. Highs on Sunday will be well above average for this time of the year. Get out and enjoy it!

CANON CITY: Low: 39; High: 71. A warm for winter day on Sunday, with lower 70s and plenty of sunshine on tap.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 28; High: 59. We'll end the weekend on an absolutely gorgeous note, with highs warming to near 60 degrees.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 60s. Unseasonable warmth and plenty of sunshine will make for a great end to the weekend. Snow returns Monday afternoon.

PLAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 70s. Highs on Sunday will warm well into the 70s. Strong breezes will increase the fire weather risk across the Plains. A Red Flag Warning has been issued for Las Animas and Baca counties during the day.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 60s/70s. Mostly sunny skies and a warm day ahead as we wrap up the weekend with highs in the 60s and 70s.

Extended Outlook: Our dry and warm weekend will give way to a big shift in the weather pattern early next week. A big blast of winter arrives on Monday, with a significant drop in temperatures and snow. Snow will increase late Monday afternoon, and will continue through midday Tuesday. Once the snow ends, bitterly cold Canadian air will dive into Colorado, with lows Wednesday morning below zero in many spots. It's a definite case of weather whiplash for Southern Colorado over the next couple of days!
