CANON CITY: Low: 37; High: 68. Tuesday's forecast will be a nice spring-time treat, great weather for those looking to get outside and breathe in some fresh air away from others.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 60s. Sunshine, mild temperatures and breezy westerly winds will all add up to beautiful Tuesday.

Extended Outlook: Wednesday will be the warmest day of the week, and a Weather Alert day here at News 5 due to increasing fire weather conditions. A Fire Weather Watch has already been issued for a large part of Southern Colorado on Wednesday, and this will likely get upgraded to a Red Flag Warning before going into effect at 11 am. Strong and gusty winds will continue to dominate our forecast through Thursday before our next storm arrives on Friday. Even though it's still a ways out, better model consensus is suggesting chances for rain and snow from Friday morning through early Saturday morning.
