A weak disturbance will bring some additional cloud cover to Southern Colorado Monday night and most of Tuesday, but it's not going to have any affect on our temperatures. Our afternoon highs over the next 4 days will be the hottest we've seen so far this year. The warmest will be Wednesday when we should break the 90° mark for the first time in Colorado Springs.

As we approach next weekend, the ridge of high pressure supporting our nice weather will break down and we'll be back to expecting afternoon showers and thunderstorms by Friday.
