Tonight’s Forecast: With the Red Flag Warning set to expire Sunday at 7 pm, we're expecting a break from the strongest wind overnight tonight. Temperatures will be slow to cool after such a warm day. Lows will eventually cool down to the 50s along the I-25 corridor, with unseasonably warm 60s for the Plains. A new Red Flag Warning goes into effect Monday at noon.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low - 51; High - 85. Record breaking heat is attainable in Colorado Springs on Monday. The previous record is 84° (2013). In addition to the heat, strong and gusty winds will continue through the evening hours.

PUEBLO: Low - 54; High - 92. We're looking at a hot, dry and windy return to the work week in Pueblo. The record high here for Monday is 92° (1989), which could be tied or even broken.

CANON CITY: Low - 56; High - 88. Hot, dry and windy weather returns on Monday. Wind gusts to 45 mph will be possible from late morning through early evening.

WOODLAND PARK: Low - 47; High - 75. A warmer and windy day for the mountains of Teller County. Gusts above 9,000 feet could top 45 to 50 mph.

TRI-LAKES: Low - 40s/50s; High - 70s/80s. Monday's forecast won't be all that different from what we saw on Sunday. With a Red Flag Warning in effect during the day, windy and dry weather is expected.

PLAINS: Low - 50s/60s; High - 80s/90s. A mild morning will give way to a hot and dry afternoon. Wind gusts could once again reach 40 to 45 mph.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low - 50s; High - 70s/80s. An unseasonably warm final day of September will see temperatures soar into the upper 70s and 80s on Monday. Wind gusts during the day could top 40 mph.

Extended Outlook: After the potential for record breaking temperatures on Monday, a more pleasant fall-like shift to the weather pattern takes place beginning on Tuesday. Daytime highs will return to the 60s for the Springs through the middle of next week, with upper 50s and lower 60s for the mountains. A weak front moving into Southern Colorado on Tuesday could bring some showers to the Plains. An easterly flow pattern resumes behind the front, with a cloudy and cooler day on Wednesday. There could also see a few showers Wednesday morning. Dry and mild Thursday. Warmer, with a chance for isolated showers on Friday, with a nice and pleasant weekend to follow.
