Today’s Forecast:
Another gorgeous day is ahead and staying extremely warm for the season. The sky will be sunny with a few high clouds, and the winds will be breezy, especially in the eastern Plains.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 71; Low: 26. The record stands at 66° and we are likely to smash that today.

PUEBLO: High: 76; Low: 28. The record in Pueblo stands at 75° so it'll be a close one.

CANON CITY: High: 70; Low: 35. Great day with sunshine and light winds.

WOODLAND PARK: High: 59; Low: 24. Feeling wonderful today with sunshine.

TRI-LAKES: High: 60s; Low: 20s. Expect mid 60s today with a breeze.

PLAINS: High: 70s; Low: 20s. Awesome day in the upper 70s, but with high fire danger. Dispose of cigarettes properly and do not burn outdoors today.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High: 60s/70s; Low: 20s. Great day in the upper 60s in Walsenburg and low 70s for Trinidad.

Extended Outlook:
You'll notice the first sign of change Monday morning as a strong cold front dives south, with clouds moving in with it. Snow remains in the mountains through early afternoon and then snow showers move east out of the mountains Monday evening. Snow becomes heavy and fills in the I-25 corridor Monday evening and overnight. Snow tapers off Tuesday and temperatures will be left very cold.
