Tonight's Forecast: Scattered showers, snow showers and thunderstorms will keep our weather active this evening over Southern Colorado. Thunderstorms could be strong in some areas, but we are not expecting this to become a severe event. Most of the snow will fall over the mountains and Palmer Divide. A few flakes could also mix in with the rain over Colorado Springs. Only minor accumulations are expected from this storm.

COLORADO SPRINGS: Low: 28; High: 55. Dry weather returns on Sunday, with a mild and breezy afternoon on tap for the Springs.

PUEBLO: Low: 31; High: 63. Bright, breezy and mild on Sunday. Highs will be above average as we close out our weekend in the lower 60s.

CANON CITY: Low: 34; High: 60. Breezy west winds will bring a nice and mild day to our forecast on Sunday, with highs warming into the lower 60s.

WOODLAND PARK: Low: 20; High: 46. Cold morning temperatures will give way to a mild, bright and breezy afternoon. Practice social distancing outside if possible and enjoy some fresh mountain air.

TRI-LAKES: Low: 20s; High: 40s. Cold and dry early, with a mix and sun clouds for the afternoon hours. Overall, Sunday will be a great day, and a nice end to the weekend.

PLAINS: Low: 30; High: 50s/60s. Sunshine returns on Sunday. Highs will be nice and mild across the Plains as we wrap up the weekend on a dry note.

WALSENBURG/TRINIDAD: Low: 30s; High: 50s/60s. Mostly sunny to partly cloudy skies for our Sunday, with afternoon highs warming into the 50s and 60s.

Extended Outlook: It will be windy at times early next week, which could lead to a higher fire weather risk for the Plains and Arkansas River Valley. These downslope winds will bring a steady warming trend to Southern Colorado through the middle of the week, with 60s and lower 70s in most areas by next Tuesday and Wednesday. An isolated shower or two will be possible on Monday, with better chances for rain and snow late next week.
