Tonight's Forecast:
Through early this evening, we'll see a few isolated showers over the mountains, some of which could drift into the Palmer Divide from the Rampart Range. The rest of us will be dry, with hazy skies thanks to a newer fire burning in southern Wyoming. Overnight lows tonight will be on the mild side for this time of the year.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 54; High: 84. A warm and hazy day for the final full day of summer. Highs will climb into the lower to middle 80s, and rain is not likely for areas east of the mountains.

PUEBLO: Low: 55; High: 90. Hot and hazy on Monday, with highs climbing into the upper 80s and lower 90s. Rain is not likely for areas east of the mountains.

CANON CITY: Low: 57; High: 87. Unseasonably warm temperatures will remain in the forecast on Monday before a little relief moves in Tuesday and our next chance of rain.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 47; High: 74. A beautiful start to the week for Woodland Park and Teller County, with warm highs and only a slight chance of an isolated afternoon shower.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 40s/50s; High: 80s. Warm and hazy, with increasing clouds by the afternoon. Rain is not expected on Monday, but Tuesday's forecast does bring us an increased chance of afternoon rain showers.

PLAINS: Low: 50s/60s; High: 80s/90s. Across the Plains, we'll see a mostly sunny and hot start to the work week, with areas of smoke and haze in the forecast.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 80s. Hazy sunshine and warmer than average highs will make for a pretty nice start to the work week. A few showers will be possible over the higher elevations, but rain is not likely east of the mountains.

Extended Outlook:
A weak disturbance moving off of the mountains on Tuesday will bring us a subtle shift in the weather pattern through the middle of the work week. There is the potential for rain to move east of the mountains Tuesday afternoon, but not much is expected. Wednesday will be the coolest day of the week, with another round of heat building back into Southern Colorado by late this week.
