Today’s Forecast:
Not too bad of a day today with southwesterly winds gusting about where we were yesterday but warming us better into the 60s and 70s. There's a chance for mountains showers and thunderstorms, some of which could actually develop out near the Palmer Divide in northern El Paso County. Tonight we'll be breezy, mild, and cool with lows in the upper 30s and lower 40s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 69; Low: 39. Increasing clouds through the afternoon with gusty winds and isolated thunderstorms on the north side of town and over the mountains west of the city.

PUEBLO: High: 77; Low: 41. Likely dry today with mostly sunny skies followed by partly cloudy and windy afternoon conditions.

CANON CITY: High: 74; Low: 43. Dry skies expected over Canon City with building clouds and stronger winds in the afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 58; Low: 31. Increasing clouds and isolated thunderstorms possible in the afternoon with dry skies through the evening.

TRI-LAKES: High: 50s; Low: 30s. Increasing clouds and scattered showers/thunderstorms likely in the afternoon. The air might be too dry for much rain to make it to the ground, but be watchful for lightning.

PLAINS: High: 70s; Low: 30s. Dry skies with gusty afternoon conditions and lots of sunshine to warm highs into the 70s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 60s; Low: 30s. Likely dry but breezy and warm with increasing cloud cover in the afternoon.

Extended Outlook:
A cold front overnight will push temperatures down around 4 to 8 degrees by Thursday, but we'll still be sunny and nice. Snow is expected on Friday, and we might actually start that day with fog and drizzle. Snow will be quick moving but likely packing a punch as it rolls through Friday, but we'll be dry for the weekend. The next snow chance is next Monday night and Tuesday.
