Dry skies will continue through the overnight hours across Southern Colorado. A weak cold front will keep it breezy early this evening, with chilly lows expected by Wednesday morning.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 35; High: 73. Nothing to complain about on Wednesday as we'll see a mix of sun and clouds, highs in the 70s, and light to moderate afternoon breezes.

PUEBLO: Low: 33; High: 78. Wednesday will bring a warm mix of sun and clouds to the Pueblo area, and light southerly breezes.

CANON CITY: Low: 31; High: 77. Chilly in the morning, but prepare to shed those layer by the afternoon as highs will climb well into the 70s.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 31; High: 67. Mild sunshine will push highs into the upper 60s in the Woodland Park area on Wednesday. The afternoon hours will be a bit breezy, with increasing southwesterly winds.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 70s. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies on Wednesday, with a warm and breezy late October afternoon on tap for northern El Paso County.

Extended Outlook:
Warm and windy on Thursday as fire danger ramps up across a good part of Southern Colorado. A big time cold front will slam into Southern Colorado Thursday evening, dropping highs by 25 to 35 degrees on Friday. Highs will rebound by more than 20 degrees on Saturday, but the warm-up will be short lived as a more potent storm system moves through the region late this weekend and early next week. Not only will it be much colder by then, but snow is starting to look more promising.
