Tonight's Forecast:
It's been a quieter day across most of Southern Colorado, with just a few isolated strong storms observed across the I-25 corridor. These storms will push east into the Plains this evening, where the environment is more favorable for severe thunderstorms to form. Wind gusts to 60 mph will be possible, along with hail stones of 1-2" in diameter for parts of Bent, Prowers and Kiowa counties.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 56; High: 92. High pressure will expand over Southern Colorado on Sunday, with heat the big story as we close out the weekend. There's only a small chance for isolated afternoon thunderstorms in our area.

PUEBLO: Low: 59; High: 99. Sunday's weather looks dry and quite toasty for Pueblo. The forecast is calling for a high temperature just shy of 100 degrees.

CANON CITY: Low: 61; High: 95. Hot highs in our Sunday forecast, with only a very small chance for an isolated afternoon shower or thunderstorm.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 50; High: 80. Hotter weather to close out the weekend over Teller County, along with scattered afternoon thunderstorms for the higher terrain.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 80s. Morning sunshine will give way to a mix of sun and clouds and very warm highs by the afternoon, along with a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms.

PLAINS: Low: 50s/60s; High: 90s/100s. Sunshine and heat will be in full supply on Sunday. Some areas in the eastern Plains could see highs above 105 degrees!

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 90s. The heat returns on Sunday under the influence of high pressure, which should also deliver a dry end to our weekend.

Extended Outlook:
The heat that we'll experience on Sunday will continue into Monday, with the most extreme heat found once again across the eastern Plains of Colorado. A mid-week cold front will deliver a cooling trend from Tuesday into Wednesday, but appears to be lacking in moisture at this point. A few showers and thunderstorms will be possible Tuesday afternoon and evening, mainly for the Pikes Peak Region and our local mountains.
