Tonight's Forecast:
Our weather has been on a "rinse and repeat" pattern since the weekend, and that will continue tonight. With a super dry airmass still in place, overnight lows will be quite cold over Southern Colorado, especially for the San Luis Valley.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 28; High: 66. The warmest day of the week is expected on Tuesday as our current warm spell continues. With Tuesday's unseasonable warmth comes the chance for a new record high temperature.

PUEBLO: Low: 18; High: 66. While we won't set any new records on Tuesday in Pueblo, it will still be really warm for this time of the year. Highs will be around 20 degrees above average.

CANON CITY: Low: 34; High: 68. With upper 60s and sunshine in the forecast on Tuesday, Canon City looks to be one of the warmest locations in the state.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 25; High: 56. Chilly morning lows will give way to a nice and mild afternoon in Teller County as temperatures are expected to warm into the middle 50s.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 60s. Sunshine and 60s for northern El Paso County on Tuesday. Not bad considering that it's the beginning of December!

PLAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 60s. Bundle up for a cold start to your Tuesday, but prepare to shed those extra layers by the afternoon as temperatures will soar into the middle 60s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 20s; High: 60s. High pressure and light downslope winds will produce another gorgeous day of weather on Tuesday, allowing for highs to warm well into the 60s.

MOUNTAINS: Low: 10s/20s; High: 30s/40s. With clear skies and light winds in the forecast, it'll be another beautiful day for the mountains of Southern Colorado.

Extended Outlook:
Our weather through Wednesday will stay calm and quiet, with well above average highs in the forecast. Because the airmass is so dry, overnight lows will be quite cold at night, especially for the mountains and mountain valleys. A cold front will drop highs by 10-15 degrees on Thursday, and bring the start of a cooler and potentially unsettled pattern to Southern Colorado. In addition to the cold air, our best chances for snow are from late Friday through Saturday morning, though moisture appears to be fairly limited.
