Tonight's Forecast:
After a hot and dry summer day, it will be a warm Saturday evening across Southern Colorado. Other than a pop-up mountain thunderstorm, rain is not expected through the overnight hours. Temperatures by Sunday morning will only cool down to the 60s and 70s across the lower elevations.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 63; High: 90. Sunday will start out nice and quiet before turning a bit more turbulent by the afternoon. Scattered thunderstorms will move off of the mountains by mid afternoon, and some could be on the strong side.

PUEBLO: Low: 67; High: 97. Morning sunshine will turn to mostly cloudy skies by the afternoon, with spotty strong thunderstorms possible after 3 pm. Thunderstorms in Pueblo County should be less numerous than over the Pikes Peak Region.

CANON CITY: Low: 66; High: 94. Sunday's highs will be a little cooler, with scattered thunderstorms forming a little after the lunch hour. The threat for rain should taper off by sunset.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 55; High: 80. Rain returns to the forecast on Sunday, with warm highs and scattered afternoon thunderstorms across Teller County.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 50s/60s; High: 80s. Mostly sunny skies will turn mostly cloudy by the afternoon, with scattered thunderstorms expected anytime after 2 pm.

PLAINS: Low: 60s/70s; High: 90s. After a couple of really hot and dry days, thunderstorms will return to the forecast Sunday afternoon and evening. Severe storms will be possible for the east and southeast Plains, with large hail and strong winds the main threats.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 60s; High: 90s. The heat will be a little less oppressive on Sunday, mainly due to the increased threat of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Some storms could be on the strong to severe side, especially for areas east of I-25.

Extended Outlook:
Monday's weather will be hotter than Sunday, almost like what we saw on Saturday. Another disturbance coming off of the mountains will initiate a round of afternoon showers and thunderstorms. Thunderstorm chances will remain in our forecast through the middle of the work week after Monday, although coverage will be spotty at best most days.
