Extended Outlook:
Saturday will be even warmer, with the 80s and 90s in the plains and 70s in the mountains. Winds will still be light enough to prevent widespread red flag
warnings on Saturday, but Baca and Prowers county will be gusty enough to prompt a fire weather watch.

On Sunday a cold front will move through early in the day bringing rain and thunderstorms. There will be enough energy for a couple of strong to severe storms along I-25 and in the plains Sunday afternoon and evening. Overnight there will be a transition to snow in the mountains and rain continues Monday in the plains.
