Tonight's Forecast:
A Flash Flood Watch will remain in effect until midnight for the following burn scars: Decker, Hayden Pass, Junkins and Spring. In addition to the threat for burn scar flooding, there's also a risk of urban, roadway and creek flooding. Most of the rain should come to an end by midnight for areas along and west of I-25. Out east into the Plains, rain showers here could linger through Monday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 59; High: 78. Thanks to cooler weather on Monday, the monsoon will weaken a bit, with only spotty to scattered afternoon thunderstorms likely over the Pikes Peak Region.

PUEBLO: Low: 65; High: 82. Much cooler on Monday, with highs down by a good 6-10 degrees. Spotty to scattered thunderstorms will be possible by mid to late afternoon.

CANON CITY: Low: 65; High: 79. A cooler day on Monday, with highs only warming into the upper 70s. The monsoon won't be as active on Monday, but we should still see enough leftover moisture to generate some spotty afternoon showers and thunderstorms.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 51; High: 68. Cooler highs and stormy afternoon skies on Monday, with scattered thunderstorms likely anytime after the lunch hour.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 70s. Monday's weather will be the coolest that we've seen in more than a month. Spotty to scattered thunderstorms will be possible during the mid to late afternoon hours, but severe weather is not expected.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 80s. Cooler weather on Monday across the Plains, with non-severe thunderstorms possible during the afternoon and evening hours.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s/60s; High: 70s. Dry in the morning, with showers and thunderstorms likely by the afternoon. Southern stretches of I-25 will continue to see the greatest potential for higher rain totals.

Extended Outlook:
Another surge of monsoonal moisture will bring Tuesday's forecast the potential for widespread showers and thunderstorms, along with periods of heavy rain. We'll have to watch our recent burn scars for possible flash flooding. Dry air is expected to filter back into the region by Wednesday, with warming temperatures for Southern Colorado as we close out the work week.
