Tonight's Forecast:
Our weather this evening will be quiet, but hazy due to lingering smoke and high concentrations of ozone from our state's wildfires. Light southeast breezes this evening will turn westerly by Tuesday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 58; High: 94. Blazing heat will return on Tuesday, and with a high expected to top out in the middle 90s, we might threaten the current record high of 95.

PUEBLO: Low: 60; High: 100. After only a few days back in the 90s, triple digit highs are expected to return to Pueblo by Tuesday afternoon. Rain is not likely on Tuesday.

CANON CITY: Low: 61; High: 97. Here comes the heat again! Highs in Canon City on Tuesday will soar into the upper 90s under partly cloudy skies.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 51; High: 85. After a pleasant Monday in Woodland Park, Tuesday looks very warm with only a slight chance of an afternoon shower or thunderstorm.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 80s/90s. High and dry can best describe our weather on Tuesday. With no sign of relief from the rain that we typically see this time of the year, highs will soar into upper 80s and 90s.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 90s/100s. Tuesday will be a hot and hazy day across the Plains, with high topping out in the upper 90s and lower 100s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 90s. The theme here on Tuesday will be more heat, and very little rainfall. If showers do form, I expect that they'll stay up over the Sangres de Cristo Mountains.

Extended Outlook:
Better upslope flow develops around the middle of the week, with a couple of chances of showers and thunderstorms from Wednesday into Thursday. Even with chances for rain in the forecast, highs will remain well above average for this time of the year over the next seven days. The weekend looks dry in the lower elevations, with isolated mountains storms possible around Teller County.
