Extended outlook forecast:
Friday is going to be breezy and dry with scattered storms over the mountains and up around the Denver metro.

The weekend will get much warmer and windy with highs in the 80s and 90s in Colorado Springs and Pueblo. Stronger winds over the weekend will lead to increased fire danger, especially on Sunday and Monday.

Next week's weather pattern is a mixed bag with long range models struggling on how to resolve a large area of low pressure. Right now, we'll bank on cooler weather in the middle of the week with a chance for rain.
