Tonight's Forecast:
Most of the stronger wind is now behind us, with a much quieter night ahead for Southern Colorado. It will remain breezy in some spots, and even though the wind won't be strong tonight, it will mix the air enough to keep overnight lows much more mild than what we saw last night.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 32; High: 64. Monday's weather will be tough to beat across the Pikes Peak Region. Highs will soar into the 60s, and the wind will be much weaker than what we saw this past weekend.

PUEBLO: Low: 27; High: 68. A building ridge of high pressure will bring warming highs and dry skies to our forecast on Monday, with temperatures more than 10 degrees above average for this time of the year.

CANON CITY: Low: 35; High: 65. Nearly perfect weather on Monday, with sunshine aplenty and mild temps. If you like it warmer, then you'll love what's in store for the middle of the week.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 27; High: 54. Cold morning lows will give way to a bright and mild afternoon. Tough to complain about the middle 50s this time of the year, eh?

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 50s/60s. Mild and sunny on Monday. Highs will warm into the upper 50s and lower 60s from Monument to Woodmoor to Palmer Lake.

PLAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 60s. Warming up on Monday, with temperatures expected to climb well into the 60s by the middle of the day.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 60s. A warm and bright start to the week, with moderate west and southwesterly breezes expected by the afternoon.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 40s. Our mountains will see a bright and warmer start to the week, with still some decent westerly breezes expected during the afternoon hours.

Extended Outlook:
Monday will be nice, but it will get even warmer as we head into the middle of the week. Highs looks to peak on Wednesday, when many areas will see 70s for daytime highs. A disturbance moving across the Northern Rockies may generate some stronger winds on Wednesday as well, which could lead to spotty critical fire weather conditions. Following this, the ridge will break down, allowing for a cooler and unsettled change in our forecast by next weekend.
