Tonight's Forecast:
It's been a foggy and cold day for the Plains. The fog should start to clear out from west to east early this evening as a frontal boundary pushes towards Kansas. With clearing skies in our forecast, overnight lows will be cold over Southern Colorado, dropping down to the 20s, 30s and low 40s.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 34; High: 72. Sunshine returns to the Pikes Peak Region on Monday, with the response being a big time warm-up after Sunday's cold and cloudy weather.

PUEBLO: Low: 32; High: 76. We struggled to get out of the 40s on Sunday in Pueblo. On Monday, highs will be much warmer as sunshine returns to the forecast.

CANON CITY: Low: 40; High: 78. With a warmer mix of sun and clouds across Fremont County on Monday, highs will be much warmer for the start of the work week.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 32; High: 66. Partly cloudy and mild on Monday across Teller County, with highs topping out in the 60s.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 30s; High: 60s/70s. After a cold and cloudy Sunday, the Palmer Divide area will see lot of warming and a lot more blue sky on Monday.

PLAINS: Low: 20s/30s; High: 60s/70s. Weather on the Plains on Sunday was cold and cloudy. Monday's forecast will be much brighter and much warmer as daytime highs return to the 60s and 70s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 70s. A warmer mix of sun and clouds is expected for our Monday as highs return to the 70s.

Extended Outlook:
Most of this week will be dry and warm for mid-October standards. Highs will be very warm through the middle of the week before a cold front slams into Southern Colorado late on Thursday. This front will bring the potential for strong winds into the forecast and initiate a much cooler change to the weather pattern as we head into the weekend. This system could also bring us the potential for our first accumulating snowfall of the month. Stay tuned!
