Tonight's Forecast:
Other than a few isolated showers along the Colorado/New Mexico border, it will be a dry night across Southern Colorado. Overnight lows will be pleasant and cool, dropping down to the 40s and 50s for most areas.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 50; High: 85. Blue skies and warmer highs will return to the forecast on Wednesday, with highs rebounding into the 80s across the Pikes Peak Region.

PUEBLO: Low: 53; High: 91. Dry skies and plenty of sunshine will make for a gorgeous day on Wednesday. The only downside to the forecast will be the heat, with highs returning to the 90s.

CANON CITY: Low: 56; High: 88. There will be plenty of sunshine on Wednesday across Fremont County. As high pressure builds into the Desert Southwest, the heat will become the main story once again.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 45; High: 77. Grab a light jacket in the morning as you head out the door, but prepare to shed that layer by the afternoon as highs will climb into the upper 70s.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 40s; High: 80s. No big weather features on Wednesday to bring us any rain or wind. Instead, we'll see a sunny and warm second day of September.

PLAINS: Low: 50s; High: 80s/90s. After a couple of comfortable days, sunshine and heat return for the middle of the week.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 80s. A nice and warm day for the far southern parts of the state on Wednesday. Highs will warm into the middle 80s from Walsenburg to Trinidad.

Extended Outlook:
A dry cold front will offer up a little bit of cooling and some gusty winds by Thursday, but this is really just a bump in the road to an otherwise hot forecast. Highs will really start to sizzle by Friday, and it looks to stay quite toasty through the holiday weekend.
