Tonight's Forecast:
This evening will be wet, not for all areas, but for some. Scattered showers and thunderstorms should come to an end late this evening, with generally dry skies overnight and very early Sunday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 58; High: 79. Not as hot on Sunday, but more muggy as the monsoonal flow will bring a steady stream of moisture into the Pikes Peak Region. Periods of heavy rain will be possible by the afternoon and evening, with the potential for urban and small stream flooding when heavy rain occurs.

PUEBLO: Low: 63; High: 87. Cooler and cloudier on Sunday as monsoon moisture increases over Southern Colorado. Showers and thunderstorms will increase in coverage by the afternoon, and rain could be heavy at times.

CANON CITY: Low: 65; High: 83. Sunday looks like a soggy end to the weekend in Fremont County. Periods of heavy rain will be possible by the afternoon, with urban areas and recent burn scars susceptible to flash flooding.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 50; High: 72. Sunshine will be in tough supply on Sunday across Teller County as frequent rain showers and thunderstorms are expected throughout the day. Periods of heavy rain will be possible by early afternoon.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s; High: 70s. Dry skies early will give way to numerous rain showers and thunderstorms Sunday afternoon. Heavy rain will be possible at times, with urban flooding possible when stronger storms occur.

PLAINS: Low: 60s; High: 80s/90s. Early morning sunshine will turn to overcast by the afternoon as showers and thunderstorms build across the Plains. For areas closer to the Kansas state line, there's a small chance that an isolated storm or two could turn severe.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s/60s; High: 70s/80s. Sunday will be wet and stormy over the southern I-25 corridor. Rain could be heavy at times, with urban and roadway flooding certainly possible.

Extended Outlook:
The monsoon pattern will continue through early next week, with Monday looking like another wet day across Southern Colorado. Moisture begins to cut off by Tuesday as it looks like a little drier by then across the southeast Plains. However, areas in and around the mountains will likely remain pretty wet through Tuesday evening.
