The weather today will be extremely summer-like with hot, dry, and windy daytime conditions.
We'll have partly cloudy skies across the region with just a small chance for isolated thunderstorms in the plains south of Highway 50.
Despite gusty southwest winds, which are extra dry as they move off the mountains, fire danger remains pretty low today across the state.

Extended outlook forecast:
A cold front overnight will move across the region and stall out across the plains Tuesday afternoon. This will allow a line of storms to form south mostly south of Pueblo, stretching from Trinidad and Walsenburg northeast through Kiowa County.
A low chance of storms exists on Wednesday but storm chances generally get better on Thursday and Friday. We'll get even more moisture over the weekend with cooler weather.
