Tonight's Forecast:
A weak cold front will drop in from the north during the overnight hours, keeping gusty winds in some areas. This front may also lead to a few light snow showers in the mountains of northern and central Colorado, with generally dry skies for Southern Colorado.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 19; High: 49. A chilly start to our Sunday will end with mild afternoon temperatures as we climb to near 50 degrees. A weak disturbance will lead to increasing clouds later in the day, but no precipitation.

PUEBLO: Low: 16; High: 53. Sunday's weather will be a lot like Saturday, with perhaps a few more clouds for the late afternoon hours from a weak disturbance moving off of the mountains.

CANON CITY: Low: 23; High: 51. Breezy and mild Sunday afternoon after a chilly morning. No rain or snow is expected in Fremont County on Sunday.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 14; High: 41. Sunny skies early followed by increasing clouds and stronger breezes for the afternoon hours. Peak wind gusts to 40 mph.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 10s; High: 40s. Sunny in the morning, with increasing clouds on tap for the afternoon hours. Snowmelt should continue as highs climb into the middle 40s.

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 40s/50s. Most of our Sunday will be sunny, but a bit breezy. We'll see increasing clouds by Sunday evening, but rain or snow is not expected.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 40s/50s. If you liked Saturday's weather, then you'll be happy with Sunday's forecast. Afternoon highs will be slightly above average, and the westerly winds will be gusty at times.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 0s/10s; High: 20s/30s. Windy and cold in the mountains, with dangerous wind chill values possible in the highest elevations. A few snow showers will be possible by late afternoon and evening, but generally north of Cottonwood Pass.

Extended Outlook:
Dry and quiet weather will persist on Monday as a tame northwest flow pattern continues over Southern Colorado. Tuesday will be windy and warmer before a weak disturbance moves off of the mountains Tuesday evening. Light snow is likely across the mountains Tuesday, with a few flurries possible around the Pikes Peak Region by Tuesday evening. Behind the storm, our weather Wednesday will be dry, breezy and colder.
