Today’s Forecast:
Rain will taper off this morning from north to south, coming to an end first across the Pikes Peak Region between 6-8 am. Drier air will push into the Arkansas River Valley shortly after that, with rain coming to an end for Canon City and Pueblo between 8-10 am. For the southeastern Plains, rain showers here will remain a factor until around the lunch hour.

Broken cloud and a few peeks of sunshine can be expected this afternoon. A few spotty showers will be possible, but most of the rain will fall during the morning hours.

Tri-Lakes forecast: High: 50s/60s; Low: 40s. After a good soaking this morning, the rest of our Monday will feature cool temperatures and mostly cloudy to cloudy skies, with a few spotty showers still possible this afternoon and evening.

Plains forecast: High: 60s; Low: 40s/50s. Heavy rain will remain possible over the east and southeast Plains until around the lunch hour. Behind the main region of rain, we'll continue to see the potential for hit-or-miss showers this afternoon, along with unseasonably cool daytime highs.

Walsenburg and Trinidad forecast: High: 50s/60s; Low: 40s/50s. Rain this morning will give way to a showery and cool afternoon across the southern I-25 corridor.

Extended outlook forecast:
A brief lull in the action is expected on Tuesday as the next disturbance will mainly favor areas to our south. Locally, we can't rule out a few isolated storms by Tuesday afternoon, with highs expected to be slightly warmer than today. Rain chances will pick back up on Wednesday, again focused on the afternoon and early evening hours. Then our next cold front arrives on Thursday, and this could set the stage for a more active and rainy day of weather for Southern Colorado.

Cool and unsettled weather will continue up through Saturday before a drier and warmer end to the weekend on Sunday.
