Warm, hazy and breezy this evening across Southern Colorado as temperatures will be slow to cool down after today's record setting heat. Overnight lows will be mild for this time of the year, with 50s and 60s on tap for most areas.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 59; High: 92. Hazy, hot and dry for one more day before a mind blowing change to the weather forecast on Tuesday. A record high is possible Monday with the current record standing at 92 degrees.

PUEBLO: Low: 60; High: 98. Sizzling summer-time heat will continue through Labor Day. A record high may be within reach for Pueblo, with the current record standing at 100 degrees.

CANON CITY: Low: 62; High: 95. Labor Day will be very hot over Fremont County. Although it will be a touch cooler than Sunday, highs will still soar into the middle 90s.

PLAINS: Low: 50s; High: 90s. The heat will be a little more tolerable on Labor Day as we'll trade in Sunday's triple digits for 90s.

Extended Outlook:
After a hot and breezy Monday, a powerful cold front will slam into Southern Colorado late Monday night into Tuesday morning. At first, the front will bring a huge drop in temperatures and very strong winds to the News 5 viewing area. Then comes the rain and snow as a wintry mix of weather moves in during the day on Tuesday. The latest models are stalling out the low pressure system over the Utah and Colorado border, which could bring more rain and snow to our forecast through Wednesday. A Winter Storm Watch has been issued for the Palmer Divide, the southern mountain ranges, Raton Mesa and the higher elevations in the Pikes Peak Region. These spots could collect as much as 4-8" of snow.
