Tonight's Forecast:
We've seen some exciting weather on this first day of fall, with rain and thunderstorms. The rain showers should come to an end pretty early this evening, with a mostly clear and comfortable night to follow for Southern Colorado.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 51; High: 83. We'll see a similarly warm day on Wednesday across the Pikes Peak Region. Rain isn't likely for most areas, but the mountains and foothills could see a few showers by the afternoon.

PUEBLO: Low: 51; High: 90. Hot and dry on Wednesday, the first full day of fall. Highs will be more than 10 degrees above average for this time of the year.

CANON CITY: Low: 54; High: 87. Warm on Wednesday, with an isolated thunderstorm possible during the afternoon and early evening hours.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 44; High: 74. Even though it's fall, our forecast on Wednesday will remain unseasonably warm, with an isolated afternoon shower not out of the question.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 40s; High: 70s. We'll see a return to dry skies and warm highs on Wednesday. While rain is not likely, it's possible that we could see an isolated afternoon shower over the Palmer Divide.

PLAINS: Low: 40s/50s; High: 80s. Hot and dry for the first full day of fall. Highs will soar into the middle and upper 80s.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 50s; High: 80s. A comfortable morning will give way to a warm first full day of fall. Rain is not likely, but there is a slight chance that we'll see an afternoon shower or thunderstorm from the mountains drift into the lower elevations.

Extended Outlook:
Big heat makes a comeback late this week. Highs in Southern Colorado will return to the 90s for many areas east of the mountains. A cool front this weekend will bring wind and not rain to our forecast, with a taste of fall on the horizon by early next week.
