Breezy this evening across Southern Colorado, with a few isolated showers possible over the mountains. The winds will weaken and turn more westerly late this evening as skies stay clear over the region. Overnight lows will be cool and comfortable, dropping down to the 30s, 40s and 50s.

Extended Outlook:
After Tuesday, highs will drop a few degrees each day through Thursday. The smoke and haze will also factor into the forecast during the latter half of the work week as well, filtering in mainly from wildfires in Oregon and California. Other than a few isolated mountains rain showers, precipitation doesn't look likely for Southern Colorado until at least the end of the weekend.
