High fire danger and heat are the main two stories in the weather department today. A ridge has built into Colorado and that will allow for widespread 80s and 90s across our region. Fire danger remains very high along and west of I-25 for areas south of Pueblo County.
COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 85; Low: 53. Hot with stronger afternoon winds and increasing daytime sunshine. Fire danger is elevated today.
PUEBLO: High: 91; Low: 54. Very hot with sunny daytime skies, gusty afternoon winds, and elevated fire danger.
CANON CITY: High: 88; Low: 55. Red Flag Warnings through the evening with hot, breezy conditions and very high fire danger.
WOODLAND PARK: High: 77; Low: 48. Warm with increasing sunshine and gusty afternoon winds.
TRI-LAKES: High: 70s; Low: 40s. Very warm with stronger afternoon winds and increasing daytime sunshine. Fire danger is elevated today.
PLAINS: High: 80/90s; Low: 50s. Hot with sunny daytime skies, gusty afternoon winds, and elevated fire danger.
WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 80s; Low: 50s. Hot and windy across the region with Red Flag Warnings in place across the region.
Tomorrow will be another day for high fire danger with highs back in the 80s and 90s. We have a chance for spotty thunderstorms in the mountains and eastern El Paso County, but dry air will make it so gusty winds and maybe lightning are about all that falls out of thunderstorms. Wednesday looks a bit cooler but with very strong winds. We're dry and a bit cooler through the end of the week.
