Tonight's Forecast:
Scattered showers and thunderstorms will be possible tonight over Southern Colorado, with the best chances over the Colorado/New Mexico border and the mountains. Overnight lows will be quite chilly again, with some mountain areas possibly dropping below the freezing mark.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 51; High: 74. Partly to mostly cloudy on Tuesday, and breezy for the first day of September. A few isolated showers will be possible, but I think that most of what develops will stay over the mountains.

PUEBLO: Low: 55; High: 81. It'll be a nice start to September temperature wise, with highs only warming into the lower 80s. A few isolated showers and thunderstorms will be possible through the afternoon.

CANON CITY: Low: 57; High: 79. We'll see a really nice start to September, with below average highs and some isolated thunderstorms. The rain should clear out by late afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 46; High: 68. A chilly start to your morning on the first day of September, with very comfortable upper 60s for highs. A few showers will be possible through mid to late afternoon.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 40s; High: 60s/70s. A storm system will bring areas of rain to northern El Paso County from late tonight through Tuesday afternoon, keeping highs unseasonably cool for this time of the year.

PLAINS: Low: 50s; High: 70s/80s. More comfortable weather ahead for the first day of September, with pleasant highs and some isolated showers and thunderstorms in our forecast.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 70s. September will begin with some gorgeous and comfortable weather. Highs will be pleasant, but there could be some occasional rain showers through Tuesday afternoon.

Extended Outlook:
High pressure will return to Southern Colorado by the middle of the week, and true to form, our weather will get warmer. A dry cold front will bring gusty winds to our forecast and several degrees of cooling on Thursday. Then the big story becomes a much warmer trend as we head towards the weekend, with highs on Saturday really hot over the News 5 viewing area.
