Today’s Forecast: A beautiful day is ahead in Colorado! A high pressure system moves into the central U.S. and brings in warmer air. Downsloping winds along the front range and eastern Plains will allow temperatures to skyrocket.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 58; Low: 28. Great day with sunshine and light winds.

PUEBLO: High: 57; Low: 25. Chilly start, but a very mild afternoon is in store with sunshine.

CANON CITY: High: 56; Low: 28. Sunny and mild today, perfect weather.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 50; Low: 25. Squeezing out a 50 degree day with plenty of sunshine!

TRI-LAKES: High: 50s; Low: 20s. Sunny in the low to mid 50s and feeling great!

PLAINS: High: 60s; Low: 20s. Wow! Low 60s today with sunshine and light winds.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 50s; Low: 20s. Expect mid 50s today and lots of gorgeous sunshine.

Extended Outlook:
Sunday is when temperatures peak, around 20 degrees above average! Monday is still looking warm with high clouds. Then the next cold front on Tuesday takes us back to seasonable temperatures in the 40s for Christmas. This system will bring snow to the mountains, heaviest west of the continental divide. Minimal impacts will be seen along I-25 and in the Plains besides a few stray snow or rain showers.
