Today’s Forecast:
We're looking at a hot few days here at the end of September in southern Colorado! A heat ridge from the west will slide in and warm our high temperatures up to or over the record high from today through Saturday. We'll see sunny skies and breezy conditions today that will last over the next few days.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High: 87; Low: 53. Hot and sunny with a light breeze in the afternoon. The record high is 88 today set back in 1992.

PUEBLO: High: 91; Low: 52. Hot and sunny with fairly light winds throughout the day. The record high is 94 set back in 1966.

Extended Outlook:
We're going to see near record highs over the next couple of days, with Friday looking like the hottest day in the forecast. We'll be cooler by Sunday with highs back in the mid 70s and a stronger breeze to help with the cool down. Next week looks dry but much cooler by Tuesday and Wednesday.
