Cold front moves in following record-breaking weather

Today’s Forecast: Expect to be not as hot today, after record breaking temperatures Labor Day. A breezy cold front arrives this morning and pushes through Colorado from north to south. Winds gusts may get to the 30 mph range as it passes. Temperatures will be cooled by about 10 degrees thanks to this front.

COLORADO SPRINGS: High - 83; Low - 56. Today will be cooler, to the low 80s. But this is still above our average high to 79. Winds will be gusty through the afternoon, diminishing this evening. The chance for rain is low with this front.

PUEBLO: High - 90; Low - 60. Pueblo still warm today, to the low 90s. But we stay out of the triple digit heat. The winds pick up late morning and may gust up to 40 mph. Rain potential is low and it will be a sunny day.

CANON CITY: High - 92; Low - 63. The frontal boundary takes longer to hop over the front range today, so winds will gust more so this evening. This also keeps today warm in the low 90s with few clouds.

WOODLAND PARK: High - 77; Low - 50. More comfortable today thanks to the cold front, to the upper 70s. The winds will be gusty in the afternoon. An isolated shower is possible.

TRI-LAKES: High - 80s; Low - 50s. Just barely making it to the low 80s today, with the cold front accelerating down the Palmer Divide and Monument hill. This will bring and windy morning and early afternoon.

PLAINS: High - 90s; Low - 60s. Hot today with breezy winds from the north. 90s are expected today with sunshine. Thankfully the Plains will be out of the triple digits. Low clouds may develop overnight with patchy fog Wednesday morning.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: High - 90s; Low - 60s. Because the cold front arrives latest for the southern I-25 corridor, the temperatures won't cool off as much as areas north. Walsenburg will be in the low 90s and mid 90s for Trinidad. A breezy afternoon is likely with sunshine.

Extended Outlook: A wave of energy helps prompt scattered thunderstorms Wednesday, which start in the mountains and move east into the Pikes Peak region. Pueblo and the Plains will likely stay dry Wednesday. Temperatures stay above average and climb through mid-week, peaking again in the 90s on Thursday. Isolated showers are possible Thursday, with most staying dry. Then cooler air and better rain potential are with us from Friday and into the weekend.
