Tonight's Forecast: Waves of moisture rolling off of the mountains will maintain scattered showers and thunderstorms in our forecast through late this evening. The best chance for seeing strong (non-severe) storms tonight will be over the southern mountains, southern I-25 corridor and Raton Mesa. The rain should taper off after midnight, with areas of fog forming overnight.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 40; High: 73. Cloudy skies Tuesday morning, with areas of fog. Mostly sunny skies and warmer daytime highs will follow for the afternoon.

PUEBLO: Low: 39; High: 79. We'll see a much warmer day on Tuesday, with morning clouds and afternoon sunshine.

CANON CITY: Low: 46; High: 77. Areas of fog Tuesday morning will give way to a mostly sunny and warmer afternoon.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 38; High: 66. A mix of sun and clouds for Tuesday across Teller County. There could be enough moisture present by the afternoon to produce a few scattered showers and thunderstorms.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 60s/70s. Areas of fog in the morning, bright and mild weather for the afternoon. Strong southerly breezes after lunch, with gusts to 35 mph.

PLAINS: Low: 30s/40s; High: 60s/70s. Morning low clouds and fog over the eastern Plains will clear to sunshine by the afternoon. Daytime highs will be nice and warm, but it will be breezy.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 40s; High: 70s. After rain and thunderstorms on Monday, we'll see dry and warmer weather return, with high fire danger on Tuesday. Peak wind gusts to 35 mph coupled with low relative humidity could lead to fast growing wildfires if a spark were to occur.

Extended Outlook: Warm and breezy on Wednesday, with fire danger increasing over Southern Colorado. Daily rain chances will return to the forecast beginning on Thursday, and this looks to continue through the start of the weekend. We dry out on Sunday, with an early taste of summer returning to Southern Colorado heading into next week. Next week looks hot, hot, hot!
