Tonight’s Forecast: Behind today's frontal passage, cold overnight temperatures are in store for all of Southern Colorado. A Freeze Warning has been issued for the overnight hours for northern El Paso County, with a Frost Advisory in effect along the I-25 corridor, eastward into the Plains. Remember that with the cold to protect sensitive plants, and to bring your outside pets indoors for the night.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low - 31; High - 72. A Freeze Warning for northern El Paso County expires 8 am Monday, with a Frost Advisory in effect for the city of Colorado Springs also through 8 am. Once the thaw wears off, daytime highs will rebound nicely for the afternoon, topping out in the lower 70s.

PUEBLO: Low - 32; High - 77. Areas of frost will be possible Monday morning in Pueblo, with a Frost Advisory in effect until 8 am. Afternoon highs will be warmer than Sunday, pushing into the upper 70s.

CANON CITY: Low - 35; High - 77. We'll see near freezing temperatures in the morning, so bundle up early. The afternoon will be bright and warm, with light southwesterly breezes.

WOODLAND PARK: Low - 30; High - 65. Cold temperatures for the morning, but nice and mild for the afternoon. Monday's forecast should feature plenty of sunshine, with light southwest winds during the day.

TRI-LAKES: Low - 20s/30s; High - 60s/70s. A Freeze Warning is in effect until 8 am for northern El Paso County, and it will be cold. Sunshine will boost afternoon temperatures into the upper 60s and lower 70s.

PLAINS: Low - 30s; High - 70s. Frost Advisories will remain in effect across the Plains until 8 am Monday. Although it will be cold early, the afternoon will be sunny and warm.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low - 30s; High - 70s. A Frost Advisory covers our forecast through 8 am Monday. Once the sun comes out, temperatures will warm nicely, topping out in the 70s.

Extended Outlook: Both our morning lows and daytime highs will moderate through the middle of the week. In fact, our forecast turns quite warm by Tuesday and Wednesday. Highs will be around 10 to 15 degrees above average. Enjoy the warm stuff because a powerful blast of cold Canadian air is still on the menu late this week. Highs Thursday will only warm into the 30s and 40s in most areas, with lows Thursday night dropping down to the teens and 20s. The likelihood that we'll see wintry precipitation is becoming more certain as well, with minor snow accumulations possible from the mountains to the Plains. Best chances appear to be Thursday afternoon/evening, but there's still some uncertainty this far out with respect to timing.
