Tonight's Forecast: Spotty to scattered showers and thunderstorms will start to wind down after sunset, with just a few lingering showers hanging around through midnight. After such a warm day, overnight lows will remain quite mild for this time of the year, only cooling down to the 50s and 60s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 58; High: 87. Unseasonably hot temperatures will continue in our forecast for the first part of June. We'll also maintain rain and thunderstorm chances Monday afternoon, with the potential for heavy rain over El Paso County.

PUEBLO: Low: 61; High: 94. The heat continues on Monday, with the potential for a fourth 90 degree plus day in Pueblo. We'll see a chance for spotty afternoon showers and storms across the area, but most of the action should stay over or near the mountains.

CANON CITY: Low: 60; High: 90. Hot, humid and stormy on Monday. Mostly sunny skies early in the day will turn mostly cloudy by the afternoon, when thunderstorms begin to form.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 50; High: 77. A mild morning on Monday across Teller County, with a very warm and stormy afternoon to follow. The potential for urban and small stream flooding is possible.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 70s/80s. Bright and mild during the morning hours. Warm afternoon highs will drive thunderstorm chances up by the afternoon, with locally heavy downpours and small hail possible.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 90s. The Plains will be hot and dry on Monday. Highs will warm into the middle and upper 90s. Seek shade and A/C during the afternoon hours, and stay hydrated.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 80s. Rinse and repeat on Monday, with afternoon showers and thunderstorms in the forecast. Plus, the heat is sticking around for the first part of the week.

Extended Outlook: We're not looking at a whole lot of change in the extended portion of our forecast. Daily rain and thunderstorm chances will hang around through Wednesday, with a drier day possible by Thursday. A system coming out of California next Friday bears watching as it could trigger more widespread severe storms for Southern Colorado.
